adMad Trivia #57
Long question, sorry- but its for a cool ad for tomorrow. Try it out and google if you have to ;-))

In 1946, the Institute for the Study of Analgesic and Sedative Drugs awarded a grant to the New York City Department of Health to study the problems associated with analgesic agents. Bernard Brodie and Julius Axelrod were assigned to investigate why non-aspirin agents were associated with the development of methemoglobinemia, a condition that decreases the oxygen-carrying capacity of blood and is potentially
lethal. In 1948, they linked the use of acetanilide with methemoglobinemia and determined that the analgesic effect of acetanilide was due to its active metabolite paracetamol. They advocated the use of Paracetamol, since it did not have the toxic effects of acetanilide. The product went on sale in the United States in 1955 under the brand name Tylenol. What was the brand name used in the UK for Paracetamol?

They have Visa check card commercials out now, where in a store, everything runs at a assembly line pace with visa check card, and someone tries to pay with a check, and the whole system comes to an halt, with everyone giving a look to the person paying with a check. Good ad!
