If you’re old enough, you’re sure to remember this classic Anacin commercial, circa 1960. The housewife’s trying to cook, the mother ventures to ask, “Don’t you think it needs a little salt?”, and she gets her head bitten off: “Mother, please! I’d rather do it myself!”
The opportunities for parody are legion. Think Mama Bates from Psycho.
There was a whole series of these Family-Member-Goes-Postal commercials: it seems Anacin was better than any platoon of family counselors.
I don’t even like to think about how the same commercials would be made today.
