    Ok, I'm not completely surprised, but I have definitely never seen a TV ad for cigarettes (at least not that I can remember) - only PSAs against them!
    They were outlawed at some point. I wonder if you can find them on youtube.
    My current favorite ad is for some kind of dog food that sponsors shelter adoptions. It starts out, "This is Arnold (I think - cute little mutt). This was his lucky day (being led out of a shelter). This is him now (all spunky and happy in a home). Love that commercial.
    Count your blessings!

    I can't even remember which brand that was. But the people always delivered that line with a black eye.

    This is more of an infomercial, but I saw it via Attack of the Show. It's for a product called the "Shake Weight". I have no words. It's so horrible it's funny.

    OK. Now, I officially know I'm old because I can remember those commercials.

    It's about time you experienced what life was like back in the day.

    I just saw this stupid product on The View the other day, and Sherri said she was going to get one. I had never seen the commercial until I went to You Tube.
