Health Alert: Jedward’s Shake And Vac Does Not Contain Mephedrone

by | 4th, May 2010

WHEN we spotted Jedward – John and Edward Grimes – stood on the pavement of London shaking white powder about, fears of an anthrax infestation were alleviated when we noted that the X Factor products had become the faces of Shake ‘n’ Vac, a white, powdery substance that rids the carpet of foul smells.

It’s a marketing campaign. And the hope seems to be that the icons of dazed and confused youth will take Shake ‘n Vac to their young fans’ hearts, possibly with the same gusto as the youth embrace meow meow, Sherbet Dip Daps, Vim and all other household products.

Their agents got in touch to remind us that Shake ‘n’ Vac is not a drug that makes you sing and dance as you get the stench of cat wee out of your rug. Shake ‘n’ Vac is a narcotic-free matter that should neither be snorted nor injected.

The message:

Just to make it completely clear, SC Johnson’s Glade® Shake n’ Vac® is intended for household carpet and rug re-freshening use only.

Glade® Shake n’ Vac® does not contain mephedrone or any narcotic substances.

If any SC Johnson product is misused or consumed in some manner, we ask you please call emergency services at 999.

Warning over. Now for those carpet, kidz!

(PS-  This is a joke and we apologise if any offnce has been caused.)
