    Blow in her face, she'll follow you anywhere. Sounds like they're talking about Michaels adventures in the hot tub.

    I got a laugh out of the Motorola TV ad. Sure, it keeps the kids out of Mom's hair... until they start fighting over what program to watch. That was a constant in my house.

    Those are great. The scary part is that I remember some of them from when they were first published. :scream:

    The "gum massager" one reminded me of the episode of Mad Men when Peggy had to try out the weight-loss belt. :rofl:

    Too bad about all the boobie shots on the right-hand side, though ... :mad:

    I didn't understand the fairy soap ad. What did it mean by 'have you a little fairy in your home?'

    Some of those are kinda awesome. Several of them actually could easily be published today. Have they seen some of the stuff that's out there? As for me, I'm going to use some cocaine drops for me sore tooth and then have a relaxing group shower. As for the Blatz Beer and Cream of Wheat ads, there are no words...And why is Emma Pillsbury in that one for the Mini. I had no idea she was so old. And thank goodness Schlitz's bold prediction about the future of beer cans actually came to pass.
