    That one got my grandmother. (That wasn't an ad catch phrase, lol. My grandmother died from cancer after smoking Pall Mall cigarettes for decades.)

    "It's Slinky, it's Slinky for fun it's a wonderful toy." Yeah, for about five minutes and then we stretched it out to see how long it was... and then we threw it in the trash.

    Helps build strong bodies 12 ways is my favorite for biggest con.

    Doctors selling cigarettes is pretty durn big too but that seems to have been snuffed quicker, more the short con than the long con.
    Cigarettes making you cool was the long con, and went the opposite way from Doc approved smokes.
    They did run at the same times I guess but aside from maybe some Moms getting conned, seems like the negative advertising idea of the badass rebel worked better.

    I recall a little tune with the percolator glass cap showing the bubbling perking coffee in time with the music?

    Nescafe?

    Schoolyard version was: Winston tastes bad like the one I just had, no filter, no flavor, it tastes like toilet paper.

    Edie Adams Muriel cigar, Hey Big Spender. I used to sing this commercial in school. If you were born in the late 40’s to early 50’s you will remember Muriel Cigar commercials. Edie Adams sang accompanied sometimes with Stan Getz.

    One of the ('70s?) girlie mags ran a cartoon ending with "It's not nice to fool with Mother nature".
    With her clutching her garb covering.
    Now it is of course considered inappropriate to joke about assaulting women, but then it was considered funny.

    Sorry!
    It's a part of past culture!

    That was the stupid tune that stayed in my head for weeks. It's been gone for 40 years. Until today. Thanks for that.
