Retrotisement: Lucky Strike’s square dancing cigarettes

Yeah yeah, smoking’s bad for you. But this stop-motion, square dancing classic from 1948 is very, very good for you.

Seriously, what’s not to love about this commercial? Well, other than the fact that it’s promoting a deadly product of course.

Oh yeah, speaking of Lucky Strike, they’ve got their own section on the main site. To see the rest of my Lucky Strike ads (including this one) and to find out how this commercial was inspired by a German abstract artist, check out the Tobacco Retrotisements home.
