Dorothy Gray Cold Cream Commercial

This commercial for Dorothy Gray Cold Cream was released in 1955. From the TVparty website:

Maybe the most outrageous commercial ever filmed. It's bad enough to find out the government was doing Atomic tests on people, now we find out Madison Avenue was doing them too!

As the commercial begins, our model is prancing around downtown in a fur coat, completely self-involved and checking her make-up because there are so many shops to go to. Later, in order to prove the cleansing power of Dorothy Gray Salon Cold Cream, her face is actually covered in radioactive dirt - verified with a Geiger counter.

Now that the woman's skin is fully radioactive, simply clean with Dorothy Gray, and Voila! - the Geiger counter proves it, Dorothy Gray cleans better!
