Thursday Night Life: Nasty Little Habits

After my post on booze ads, I really thought I would find a plethora of cigarette ads, given that this was an era in which people smoked rather a lot. To my surprise, I could find only two cigarette-related ads.

This isn’t even a cigarette ad, it’s an ad for lighters (bonus points for managing to make fun of old white men with mustaches, though).

This ad for Camels is, notably, on the back cover and in full colour. And it manages to summon the romance and allure of Hollywood. You, too, can look like this craggy camera man!
