I Saw It Advertised One Day #27

by  in Comic News Comment

We continue a MONTH of I Saw It Advertised One Day! Each day this January you’ll get a piece looking at advertisements in comic books over the decades that amused me for whatever reason. In each installment, we’ll take a look at three ads!

Here is an archive of all installments of this feature.

Enjoy!

I love how X-Ray Spex ads had to change over the years to make them less deceiving.

Here’s one from 1966…


Now here’s one from 1967…


Hilarious, right?

What strikes me the most about this 1960 PSA about the US’ brand-new state, Hawaii, is that Daniel Inouye, then Hawaii’s Representative in the House, was elected to the Senate two years later…


And is STILL in the Senate!

It sure is good to know that Color Kings make your bike feel like a brand-new 1956 sports car! When I think about sports cars, the first thing that comes to my mind is green tires!


Sounds right to me!!

That’s all for this installment! If you can think of some goofy comic book ads you’d like to see me feature here, drop me a line at bcronin@comicbookresources.com. Do not make suggestions in the comment section, so that they can still be a surprise for future readers! In fact, I think I’ll just delete comments that contain future suggestions.
