(…)[L]ife’s most vital meeting (…)

(…)[I]nspired by the meeting of male and female: man and woman. The feminine in the masculine subconscious (Anima) and the masculine in the female subconscious (Animus), and the complementary in the two archetypal sides. Tango (…) exudes passion, pride, love and attraction (…) Take pleasure in the dance (…)

Not about a class or show, but about salt and pepper mills. Seriously. Tango apparently sells anything. We got them for Christmas. People assume we’ll love any product line called ‘Tango’ 😉

This is nothing new, of course, as can be read in the book by Simon Collier et al., Tango was used to sell left over fabrics in the colour orange in the early 20th century. Hence the term ‘Color Tango’ was coined. Tango sells, now as then. No wonder, after all it exudes passion, pride, love and attraction!
