This isn't Marilyn related but it was too much fun not to share. If you live in Canada you may be familiar with the Knorr Sidekicks commercials featuring a sad salt shaker. The character is advertising their new lower sodium products, so the joke is that the shaker is sad because he isn't being used as much anymore.
Here is the original ad that pulls at your heartstrings and makes you fall in love with poor Salty.
This was a follow up that I only saw online. They should keep them coming - they are great!
Currently, if you live in Canada you can mail away for your own set of shakers. Be patient, they took 8 weeks to come but it was worth the wait. Here they are!!! I smile every time I walk into the kitchen. BTW, the card that comes around his neck says, "Please only use me sparingly." Too cute.
