I saw this ad in midtown and thought of this comic pretty much right away. Apparently this cream is world famous and if you know about skin creams you know about this one. The product ended up as an anti-wrinkle cream through dumb luck. As the article describes it they were doing market research, but the tubes of cream were labeled “topical cream.” Then people started using it noticing it smoothed out their faces and so it became anti-wrinkle cream.

Ew, “skin cream” taken out of context sounds like a really gross chocolate flavor. Wow, I’m sorry for that image.
