Whilst running a bath yesterday I poured a cap-full of my behind-the-pharmacy-counter shampoo under the running water, which gave a pleasing bubble-bath-like effect. This lead me to think that bubble-bath used to be advertised on TV but I don't remember having seen an ad for it for years.
Is this because
a) like people having current accounts it is too banal to advertise now?
b) back in the 70s we were all poor and bubble bath was the height of luxury but now it's not worth advertising (actually this is probably not that different from (a))
c) I didn't get the memo and it was discovered to cause cancer in rats / global warming / communism / lycanthropy?
d) actually they do advertise it but I don't watch the right things at the right time?
e) other.

Also, what became of 5 pin DIN plugs?
