Mini Skirt Monday #6

Most people arriving on a Mini Skirt Monday post probably have an expectation of lots of smoking hot women in tight little skirts - standard internet eye candy. However, regular followers of Retrospace know this is just another opportunity to explore some more odd corners of the retro pop culture landscape. And what better theme to lead us on our way than the mini skirt?

Take for instance this denture cream ad...

This is a great line, you can't deny it: "Why spoon feed yourself creamed chicken when you'd like to be enjoying a chicken leg like everyone else?" Also, the lady in the ad strikes me as a little young to need dentures. I guess it's possible, but a little strange.

Then there's this drunk Turkish singer...

Apparently, Kamuran has had a long illustrious singing career in Turkey beginning in 1968. Listen to her song "Sevgi nedir hic bilmedim" here courtesy Garage Hangover.

Kamuran also had an acting career. I've never seen this film, but I'm pretty sure that marriage is in trouble...

I did my best to tranlate "Silemezler Gönlümden" and the best I can come up with is "cannot delete from my heart". I think I get the meaning.


  1. Woo-hoo! That's no jive, Turkey. She's pretty hot.

  2. I think she needs another drink..

  3. I was thinking that she was rather young for dentures.

  4. That is the sexiest Poli Grip ad I have ever seen.

  5. I love mindresses. I own many of them like the seventies style.

  6. Your translation is close but "(they) cannot delete (you) from my heart" is more correct. Silemezler Gönlümden is the name of then-hit song of Kamuran.
