1965 Dr Pepper Hot

1965 Dr. Pepper. Does anyone remember drinking Dr. Pepper as a hot drink?

1965 Chesterfield

1965 Chesterfield King Cigarettes. They satisfy! Especially for those who hate those pesky filters filtering out deadly toxins. More toxins please!

1965 Condatine Tomato Sauce

1965 Condatina tomato sauce coupon. By today’s standards, 6-cents is nothing but back then it was nothing to sneeze at.

1965 Schlitz Beer

1965 Schlitz Beer. This is obviously a dude who doesn’t have to clean his own floors.

1965 Tampax Tampons

1965 Tampax. Feminine Hygiene has always been a mystery to me but it much less perplexing than the advertising for it.

1965 Vokswagon

1965 Volkswagon. Must admit, I’d love to putter around in one of these. Even if they are deathtraps

1965 RCA Color Television – Jack Benny and Johnny Carson

Today’s advert isn’t so much about the product as it is the people selling it. As an aficionado of all things archaic, for me Benny was the icon of an a full half-century of entertainment. While never the most politically correct nor a friend to those who appreciated the violin, Benny was telling the same jokes you laugh at today back in the 1920s. To me Carson was always a much dimmer light in the world of entertainment but he’s OK here too.

Switching gears a bit, I’d like some feedback and opinions here. There seems to be a fair amount of interest in this blog and for that I thank you. You’re all appreciated and welcomed. I would like to hear your thoughts on the general selection for ads. Anything you want more of or less of? More content and analysis or less blather? Prefer a certain genre of products? I’ve been withholding dozens of automotive ads on the principal that it’s fairly redundant and dull. Is it? Anyway, all thoughts appreciated. Help me steer this thing!
