Sorbent Folder or Scruncher

SCA Hygiene has made its way into popular Australian culture with a TV ad for Sorbent toilet paper, “Folder”. Brett, a red head pre teen, lives in a family of scrunchers. When it comes time to deal with the serviettes after dinner, his parents, his little sister and his twin brothers are all scrunchers. Brett’s a folder, like his great grandmother was a folder. She’s dead. Brett thinks he’ll be a folder til the day he dies. And so he sits in the toilet, happy to be a folder. The voiceover and super: “Whether you’re a folder or a scruncher, Australian’s love Sorbent.” Pity about the comma inserted into “Australians”.
