"But Ironhead, What's With This Thingie?"

I was reminded today of one of my all-time favorite commercials: the late, great, Craig "Ironhead" Heyward pitching Zest bodywash. It may be difficult in these Axe/Old Spice/Tag times, but in the mid-90s, it was not considered acceptable for a man to wash himself with a "poof" a "thingie" or a "loofah." Men used bars of soap and an optional washcloth. Ironhead single-handedly made the world safe for men to use liquid soap in the shower. And for that, Ironhead, we solute you.

That thing is called a loofa? I call mine a chest-hair-polisher-and-scrote-exfoliater.
