Ads From the Past – #9

“Then the only good, fast, honest-to-Gregg stenographer I got. this red-head Morissey – balks at the postage meter!”

Complete with lolli!

“Now you’re shooting all over the place!”

This is for a “joy stick! Think of Mad Men sitting around the table trying to come up with an ad for a “joy stick!”



About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)

  1. I loved Love’s Baby Soft when I was a teen & I sewed dresses for myself that looked like that, too. the 70’s had the best fashions.

    The second two were obviously blatantly sexual, but the first one staggered me in that they would go to such lengths to produce a really shitty ad for something as mundane as a franking machine. Who gave those Ad guys money for that? He should have been fired!
    Best wishes, Pete.

    The scary part is that these ads are from the not-so-distant past. We’ve come a long way, but there’s still work to do!
