Wordplay Wednesday (March 2, 2016)

The place to talk. "On topic"? "Off topic"? We make no such petty distinctions here.

Wordplay Wednesday (March 2, 2016)

Ken's blog entry:

Take common English word, and then advance its first letter one step later in the alphabet. (Like turning “rap” into “sap,” or “dither” into “either.”) These two words, in order, end one of the most famous TV ad slogans in history.

Advance the first letter yet again (“sap” into “tap”) and you’ll get a brand name that was also famously represented by the same star of the ad above.

What are the three words, and who’s the mystery celebrity?


"Vassup?!?" didn't make any sense, so I gave up.
