12 Crazy old ads!

(1/4) > >>

Holy crap, these old ads tell us a lot about pre-politically correct marketing, such as when everyone smoked!

Although I do remember the days (in the US) when everyone smoked, and when I was little they ran TV ads spouting this kind of stuff about doctors.

Ahh, the good ol' days.

I love the 7-Up ad - it's going on my wall, right next to my smoking baby figurine (

Of all the things that shouldn't smoke, babies are at the top of the list. The tag line for this product emphatically states our position on this issue: Real Babies Should Never Smoke! Ceramic babies smoking, on the other hand, are strangely appealing. Celebrate this absurd juxtaposition with one of these 2 3/4" tall ceramic babies. Each infant comes with a pack of ten Li'l Smokes and has another one in its mouth, ready to light up and puff. The smokes are actually non-toxic, unscented incense wrapped in paper.
