This one is anti-smoking, but it's funny.

if I had grown up in Britain I have no doubt that I would have been a Capstan Full smoker.

Fantastic idea for a thread. Love it!

When I saw that Condor Moment commercial, I so identified with that fellow on the park bench just lighting up a bowl! Thought of my across the street neighbor. Sure would be nice to quiet them with the push of a button like that.

This old St. Bruno advert isn't much seen,
left as a click link because I couldn't figure out how to embed at the right time,
it starts at 2:05 but clicking the link goes straight to it...

Probably.
Did you know of that band before you googled? Hilarious.

I meant the cigarettes, of course. Named after the nickname for the R.N. They were known to give you both an heart of oak and a tongue of moss.

This is a really fun thread.
