This might not be breaking news but I tend to talk alot. So scratchy and sore throats tend to be common in this line of work. We all have our methods to deal with it. Mike and Dana swear by a particular throat spray. Kelley likes hot tea and this powdered drink mix thing (this reminds me I need to ask Dre what she does). I however, love ricola cough drops. I keep a bag on my desk and another bag in my car. Maybe because of their ingredients or maybe the wax paper they are wrapped in but I've never had them melt in even the hottest Texas sun (and my car interior and exterior are completely black!). But today our receptionist Tammi had a scratchy throat (I'm not saying it was because of Texas Thunder Fest but come on, it was definitely because of Texas Thunder Fest). So I said she needed a "RICOOLAAAAAAAAAAAAA" and she had no idea what I was talking about!!! She had never heard that jingle, so I immediately corrected that by having her watch a bunch of old commercials on youtube... because that is how you have a productive work day.
Anyways some of those commercials were insane and weird... also vaguely European, so I just had to share them. Warning: You may want a cough drop after this.
