Burma Blockade Deodorant

Nothing like naming your product so that it sounds like a military operation, then touting it with a stereotyped "Oriental" gal.

Of course, we'd have to relaunch this as "Myanmar Blockade" today.

Bonus video: the same gal touting the more famous Burma Shave.

The same company, surely? The same typeface, as well - it looks to me very much like S.H. de Roos' Libra.
