For more than 30 years, the name Magikist was synonymous with lips — big, giant illuminated red lips that flashed over some of Chicagoland's busiest roadways. The iconic signs first went up in the early 1960s to advertise the Magikist rug cleaning company (the "sweetest name in rug cleaning"). The name itself was a blend of "magic" and "kissed" but it was the landmark lips that became a staple of pop culture in the Windy City. By the early 2000s, the company's long history was winding down, and the famous signs started to come down too. The company closed in 2001 and the last lips sign was torn down in 2004.
