@djjd62,
Awesome. Interestingly, although I'm the right age, I don't remember a single one of these specific ads. I wonder if any of 'em could be phony?

@djjd62,
Oh, yeah, the eye patch was standard Hathaway. I remember that. Not that particular ad but the guy with the eye patch was all over the place. No, I'm talking about some of the more outrageous ones, are they for real?

(The eye patch was for Hathaway what the tattooed cowboy was for Marlboro cigs.)

I remember the Love's Baby Soft ad. Someone in the comments section thinks the model is Brook Sheilds - could be.

Who knew Lysol could save marriages? I would be happy if my husband just used it to clean the toilet.

So I don't get why the guy wants to murder the woman over a Pitney Bowes postage meter. You stick the envelope in and pull the lever, no big trick.

the chef was broken and i had to glue him back together, i'd never get rid of them, but i wonder what they might be worth

@djjd62,
Wow, those ads are just downright weird! Never seen them before, either.

I like this idea for a topic. Nothing like a bit of nostalgia to bring out the old farts in the closet. Wink
