Flip-top head laugh

Does anyone remember the little flip-top head guy from the old Reach toothbrush commercials?

Every once in a while I'll make a joke about how much easier my job would be if my patients had flip-top heads, but 95% of the time I just get weird looks. Apparently nobody remembers him.

Don't you hate it when that happens? You think you say something really clever, but all you get is silence.

Well several years ago (probably during a long road-trip, I can't exactly recall), my sister and I discovered a way to guarantee laughter at even your un-funniest jokes, and it actually involves this little Reach guy.

Simply follow these steps and you will be entertaining your friends in no time!

Step 1: Submit witty commentary

No one laughs

Step 2: Repeat witty commentary at a slightly louder volume (they may not have heard you the first time).

Still no laughter, and possibly a couple of odd looks

Step 3 Repeat witty commentary at a VERY LOUD VOLUME, then throw your head back as though it were a flip-top, and release a hearty laugh.

Enjoy raucous laughter from all members of your audience, and pat yourself on the back. Job well done.

Trust me, they're laughing with you.

  1. ha just picturing this makes me smile. i would love to be in the room when someone did this! lol

  2. I TOTALLY remember him! So you're not alone! lol

  3. It's like those people who don't get sarcasm. I simply can't be friends with them.

  4. Haha. I forgot about this commercial until you showed the photo. If my hygienist made a joke about having a flip-top head I probably wouldn't have had any idea what the joke was about. Maybe you should print out the photo and tape it in your room. :P

  5. I totally remember that little guy. Believe me, if we were able to do that, it would make trips to the dentist SO much easier!

  6. I REMEMBER HIM! One of my favorite commercial gimmicks ever!

    And yes, laughing with you. *nods* ;)

  7. Hahaha, I remember that commercial! Though I'm pretty sure, had I not seen this image, that I wouldn't have had a clue what you were talking about. :)

  8. I remember him...
    I wonder where he's at now...I hope he didn't end up like all the other washed out celebs, on drugs and such.


Comments make me smile :)
