More Doctors Smoke Camel Cigarettes

This is amazing.  Here's a very interesting look at ten of the most iconic ads from history, including an advertisement for Camel unfiltered, the brand most preferred by doctors (what???).  Click here: Consumer Culture: Top 10 Ironic Ads From History

My ears were burning this morning.  Now I know why.   Here's a take on a recent White Horse Inn program over at the World Magazine blog.  Click here: | Community | Blog Archive | Evangelicalism and hypocrisy

The 10 ironic ad section was fascinating. I especially enhjoyed the 1960 Corvair ad and associated Time magazine " 50 worst cars of all time" link. Rod's favourite Renault Dauphine made the list. Read some of the copy, the writer is hilarious. Great joke about the Yugo. "Why do Yugos have a rear window heater? So your hands don"t get cold in winter while your pushing."

My sister had a Corvair in college. One day she was driving it in a residential area and the engine fell out. Good thing she wasn't on the interstate when it happened. Apperently loss of power due to engine loss was a common weakness of this car.

I've heard some of those Camel radio ads. I used to have a cassette of an Abbot & Costello Show program with their 'Who's on first?" routine. The cassette had the complete program, with commercials, and the Camels ads were on there.

When I was an everyday smoker I was more of a Lucky Strike guy. I have one of my grandmother's National Geographic magazines from 1955 and it had an add that claimed that "9 out of 10 doctors recommend Lucky Strike cigarettes!" I rue the day I took that medical advice.

Loved the World mag article! There were some very interesting comments, too.

Camel? Hack, hack, hack.... Those were horrible! Now, Winston Menthol, that was another story!

It's been 23 years since I had a puff...

I had a funny comment about how the cig and sex links were curiously ordered, but then I refrained for the sake of more sensitive readers. But it was funny.
