I have a new traumafession that has recently resurfaced after lying dormant for decades.
Thanks to the marketing folks, my old nightmare fuel from Swiss Miss has been resurrected.
In the 1970s Swiss Miss ran ads with a disturbing stop motion doll. She always gave me the creeps and contributed to at least one early childhood nightmare. I think part of it is simply the evil smile and dead eyes but the way she would yodel and the way it would echo was another contributing factor.
I remember being relieved when the company moved away from using her image in their advertising and switched to the more cartoonish version of the girl. However while shopping recently I spied her scary face once again as she is back on the packaging with the old advertising artwork. Let’s hope if she makes new commercials they are CGI.
