WE MAKE! HOLES IN TEETH!

Back in the day,* the makers of Crest toothpaste warned us Generation Xers against the dangers of not brushing our teeth, or at least the dangers of not using their product to do it, lest we fall prey to those monstrous molar marauders--THE CAVITY CREEPS!  See for yourself.  Remember the terror!  Remember the horror!  Remember the bicuspids!






Who knew the Cavity Creeps were pilots?


Looking back, I'm impressed by the character design used in these commercials.  It's tight and detailed, much like a dramatic comic strip or Classics Illustrated comic book, as opposed to a more "cartoony" style.

The Creeps, of course, are not to be confused with ABC's "Yuck Mouth."

Thanks!

*(the phrase "back in the day," unless otherwise indicated, refers to the late 70s/early 80s of my youth)

Wow, these bring back memories.

Back in the late 80's, when I was in the high school Pep band, we had decided that the cheerleaders weren't doing a good job at basketball games, so we came up with our own cheers.

Imagine a small high school Pep band chanting over and over:

"WE MAKE HOLES IN TEETH!"
