Tlmw News Servlc* NEW YORK — "Most everyone I talk to," writes a reader, "says if there is one thing THEY WILL NOT buy it is Sharmin (he meant Channin) tissues because of what most people think is a nauseous commercial on TV 'don't squeeze the Shacmin (he still means Charmta) etc.' I'd be interested in knowing what response there has been to this ad — whether S (C) harmin sales have actually increased (or declined) and to what extent." Well, dear reader, you cither haven't talked to enough people or the ones you have talked to lied and are buying their toliet tissue on the sly, because Charmin is going like a house afire and carving out bigger and bigger pieces of $525 million a year market. And please don't make George Whipple, (the super market manager in the com merclal), sound impolite. He always says, "Please don't. . .' Charmin, like its sister prod ucts, Pampers disposable dia pers, and Bounty Paper (tow els), are from Procter & Gam We, those master marketeer; It is now available to 85 pe cent of the population anc trade sources indicate, has -about 15 to 20 per cent of th market, probably running neck and-neck with Scott, long th leader. And, reader-writer dear, you can bet your bippy on this—P. & G. does nothing in the field of advertising without thoroughly testing it and testing it some more. P. & G..'s Charmin Pape Products Co.

The advertising campaign is •hat the professionals call a modified slice-of-life tech- ique" with a tongue-in-cheek pproach. One advertising executive characterized it as brilliant," another, who didn't think it Was tongue-in-cheek nough, said it was certainly iclped by the fact that the »roduct is a superior one. One sly old fox in the agency business was asked if there is any relationship between the irritation quality of a commercial and the sale of products. He answered the quastion with two question, ."irritating x> whom? And how do you know?" And listen to this, dear reader, he also said, "who does the complaining? Shut-ins, neurotics, the unstable, and the so- called intellectuals who hate advertising anyway." "A high irritation factor," he noted knowingly, "almost always correlates with high recall scores and high sales usually follow them." Decorative Charm...
