I used to think......

Postby Beardyoldblaggard on Tue Feb 05, 2008 1:32 pm

Does anyone remember the old Smirnoff adverts that went "i used to think....was....until I discovered Smirnoff.

We had a whole bunch of amusing derivatives:

I used to think fellatio was a Spanish monk until I discovered Smirnoff.

any good ides?

Ah, so that's where it comes from.

Years ago when I was about 12 (1980) I had a book called Graffiti: Scrawl of the wild which had all this famous Graffiti in it (including the infamous British Airways Luggage in Bermuda one).

One of the pieces said:

I used to think Wan King was a town in China until I discovered Smirnoff

I got the joke, but I never knew what relevance it had to Smirnoff until now. Thanks for the pointer, Beardyoldblaggard.

I used to think... that is, until I found Smirnoff.

I used to think Lembik Opik was a brand of Cold Remedy until I nearly collided with him this morning after discovering Smirnoff.
The smoke wafted gently in the breeze across the poop deck and all seemed right in the world.

Yeah well, it helps if you have some familiarity with the slogan. I don't think that ad was ever shown in Australia.
