I’m That Old.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 11:15 am

You have to check out the television commercials from 1950 that I found at The Ultimate Insult. While I may be that old and while we did have a television back then (with a ten inch screen), I don’t remember these particular commercials (I hadn’t even started school). I do, however, remember ones that were just like them. My, how things have changed.

The first two or three should be of particular interest to Eric.

Damn, I really am that farookin’ old.


  1. … “sit back and enjoy a Camel”.. I wonder how many of those Doctors are still kicking around?… probably not many, but I sure enjoy those lungbusters…

  2. Wow. My folks have that clock on the mantel in the Camel ad from “Your Show of Shows”.

  3. The way I see it, one’s young only once, but can remain immature forever, and so I do.

  4. De-lurking to say…Wow…what a time trip. I watched the first couple minutes of this and couldn’t take any more!

  7. No wonder everybody smoked back then when even the doctors were pitching cigarettes. Wild stuff.
