Where Are The Cigarette Ashes of Yesteryear?

This is why irony was invented:

Your daily ear worm from the gold standard of ear worms, 1960s cigarette commercials. So, do you think she's lip-synching here?  Try getting this one out of your head.

Try one Miss Jane.

Hey kids! Light up!

What would Don Draper say?

Heh, I was just thinking of Don Draper! Of course, in 1965, Sterling-Cooper-Draper-Pryce, w/ Don's public notice, gave up cigarette ads (now, if only Don, et al, could give up smokin' 'em!)

Who is the actor who missed the bus in the first clip. He looks very familiar. I though at first it was Karl Malden, but I don't think that's right. But I'm sure he's better known for something.

And in the final clip, shouldn't it have become "Winstone"?

The last televised cig ad I remember is the Marlboro Man lighting up after a hard day's work. Now THAT made me want to smoke
