Well, thanks to a bit of web searching, I was able to find the offending ECC advertisement I mentioned previously online.
So, dear reader, may I suggest that you take a brief diversion to this page (requires Flash) and click on the face where it says “click here.” You can watch the stereotypical native English speaker’s nose grow before your very eyes, along with the hair turning blond, and – something I missed earlier – the eyes becoming blue. You’ll be redirected after the metamorphosis, so feel free to use the back button. Or save yourself time by just downloading the Flash file itself, here.
In the blue speech bubble at the end of the animation sequence, pointing to the nose, it says, “This is how far it will grow in three months.”
