I Saw It Advertised One Day #27

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.


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.
