Hey, Maurice, two minutes for lookin' so good!

In advertising class the other day, we did a live re-enactment of the classic Canadian Grecian Formula ad featuring Maurice "The Rocket" Richard (lookin' a little long in the tooth) and the catchphrase that captured the imagination of a generation.

Forget "I am Canadian." Life would be so much better if we brought back: "Hey, INSERT NAME OF PERSON YOU'RE SPEAKING TO HERE, two minutes for lookin' so good!"


  1. Love this commerical, but I have to ask: Did any of your students have a hot clue what you were talking about when this came up?

  2. Ha, ha: no, but I asked them to try out the line on their parents. Results TBD!
