CAN THIS BE REAL?

(Thsnks to Jon Harris)

Update: It's not for real. It's a clever ad by Dutch health insurance company Ixorg designed to encourage people to pay monthly premiums to cover their dental treatment. -- John Finn

"Each DentiDrill drill bit is designed to handle up to 2,000 home dental sessions"

So if you plan on getting up 2,000 cavities, Its a really smart investment.

Is it safe ?

And you thought your dad cutting your hair when you were a kid was a bad thing! I really, really hope this isn't real.

We always used these at home.
Like Mom said, "Eee a-ayes uss is..."
I think that's what she said.

Only think I can figure is that it's aimed at British citizens who can't get in to see a dentist because of the dentist shortage over there. Do see that the price is listed in pounds. Really thought it was a joke at first!?

I just keep thinking of that scene from Marathon Man.

"Is it safe?"

"What?"

"Is it safe?"

"Yes, dear. It's broccoli. Now put that away."

"Aww, Mom."

It's not for real. It's a clever ad by Dutch health insurance company Ixorg designed to encourage people to pay monthly premiums to cover their dental treatment.

Real or not, Walt Kelly was all over this concept decades ago. Drive-in funeral parlors, too.
