It used to be called Ulay in this country until some Marketing exec decided that a spanish bullfighter call was most appropriate for a global market. I recall buying my mother that stuff for her birthday when I was a kid.

Yes, because the triumphant exhortation of the matador is the perfect tagline for the wrinkle cream your grannie wore, right?

Was Jif renamed Cif because of the pronunciation of Jif in other European countries, and thus, it's association with furries? :cute:

Did you know that in "The Lion King" the character of Puumba was renamed in Swahili-speaking countries?

It translates as "smegma".

How's that an inappropriate name for an oily, smelly warthog?

Disney got squeamish. Let's face it- would you raise an eyebrow if they introduced a female one called "Fannibatter"?
