This is one of the most successful ads of all time…

It ran for 40+ years, unbeaten.  It was NEVER defeated.  It was only retired when the guru in it passed away, his company was sold, and the new company was dumb enough to stop running it.  Rumor has it that another company knocked it off, and ran it for decades longer, selling their own version of the product.

The ad?

“Do You Make These Mistakes In English?” by Maxwell Sackheim.

Earlier today, I did a live analysis of this ad for my BTMSinsiders members.  I broke it down, line-by-line, and revealed the WHY behind what Sackheim did, in every line of copy.

It’s quite powerful.

For today’s Video Friday, I wanted to share a bit of that analysis.  Specifically, my breakdown of the headline itself.
