Thank you for the link. 🙂
Ah, the good old days. Sitting around in the lounger wearing that nice suite and tie, stinking of Old Spice and smoking up a storm sure spells relaxation in my book. Hey, where are the whiskey ads?

Those are for MOTHERS’ Day, don’cha know!!
Now that you mention it, I think you are right! I was thinking a Dad from Mad Men Season 1, but, wow, I would think a Mom from Mad Men Season 1 would deserve that drink a million times more…
I didn’t remember Naugahyde being so scary. \@’@/

Thank you for reblogging. 🙂
Great fun. Thanks for the memories..
I never really got into the Lil Abner comic strip. But I was worried about the morality of an ad showing Daisy Mae ogling Abner’s boxers so I did some quick research. Sure enough—they got married! So it’s all good and now I know a lot more about Lil Abner and crew than I did 15 minutes ago.
As a devoted cigar and pipe smoker, in an age of inverted priorities, I relished the honesty of the first ad. : )
Heavens to Murgatroid! … wonderful, in kind of a twisty way. 😀
Love these and recall giving my Dad both Old Spice and High Karate. (Different years).
So many tobacco ads. My Dad smoked cigars which somehow gave me a stomach ache when riding in the car. Luckily in those days you could stretch out over the back seat when you weren’t feeling well. No pesky seatbelts to restrain you.

I used to be good at sports. Then I realized that I could buy trophies. Now I’m good at everything.
