Does marketing work? Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you . . . Exhibit Demon:
"Mom?" Demon Baby comes and stands by my desk chair and taps me on my arm. "I need you to get me something."
I look up from my computer. "I beg your pardon?"
"I don't understand? Is it a toy? I've never heard of this toy? Say it again slowly."
Looking at me like I am an idiot, he pronounces it: "SOOOOOOOOFT COTTTTTTON!"
"Yeah, soft cotton."
I am completely confused. "I still don't get it. What is it you WANT?"
"It's on a commercial. Soft cotton. I think I need it."
"You mean, like those cotton commericals?"
"Yeah. And because you're my mom and you love me, and you're like the best mom I have--"
"I'm the ONLY mom you have."
"That too. And because you love me, you should really get me the best. Soft cotton."
So there you go, cotton industry. Apparently, your ads work.
