Reddi-Wip Frankenstein

A Halloween-time ad from 1997 puts a stitched-up can of Reddi-Wip on the laboratory slab, ready to “bring your dessert creations to life”.

Reddi-Wip is whipped cream in a can, its ingredients startlingly propelled into instant edible foam by nitrous oxide. Not only is it a dessert topping, it can also be piled on a paper plate for a pie-in-the-face gag, or used to decorate a newlywed’s car.    

With thanks, from the collection of Mr. Fritz Frising.

Careful decorating cars with this stuff --- some people did it to a friend's new car and it removed the paint!
