One of the historic LISTERINE® ads used in the documentary

This is a little different from the topics I usually post about, but my colleagues at our consumer operating company recently did a really cool documentary about LISTERINE® Antiseptic, and they asked me to be in it to talk about some of the early history of the product.  Actor Neil Patrick Harris is the narrator, and if you go to the This is Your Mouth site to watch it (which is why I’m not embedding the video here!), not only will you get to hear a certain blogger, but – more important – our operating company that makes LISTERINE® will donate $1.00 to America’s Toothfairy®, a national U.S. non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating pediatric dental disease (the leading chronic childhood illness), and making sure children receive comprehensive oral health care.  Johnson & Johnson has been a promoter of oral health for almost 125 years (our very first price list included an oral health product-- a tooth cream).  So please go to this link to watch the video:
