  1. Yep, we’re certainly smarter than those dummies from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. If one forgets about the opioid epidemic, crystal meth, crack, cocaine, pot, huffing glue and paint etc.

  2. I quit smoking 50 years ago and I still miss it. 2 packs a day of Chesterfields, non-filtered, but they were only about 30-35 cents a pack. Even Ronald Reagan advertised them. Shame the brand went away but I guess it’s good they’re not available to temp me back.

  3. The woman with the black eye and „I remember momma and poppa“ truly belong in some dark sarcastic Netflix mocumentary about that era. Although I’m afraid to think what material can be used for a documentary about our time.

  4. Let’s add insult to injury. While the Tareyton smokers cough up their rotted liquidated lungs, they can contemplate the error in the ad: it should be “We Tareyton smokers”.

  5. … another marine – in miniature – greets the world with leather lungs tp match his dad’s leather neck. Brilliant. Also the advert about stop indulging is great.

  6. Kinda reminds me of the way we see social media now. Should it ever be criticized, hoards of people will be up in arms to defend. As addicts do. “What ever you do, don’t ever try to take away my only source of comfort and escapism, my fun, my joy, my connection that I can totally live without and that I am in no way addicted to. It’s just some harmless fun that I can control.”

  7. The past was objectively better; parents listened to their babies’opinions on what brand of cigarette they should smoke. Nowadays, parents do not even trust their babies around bare wires or open flames! How is a baby to make a living at the foundry anymore?

  8. “blow in her face and she’ll follow you anywhere”. Did it once, she told me my breath was stinky, she didn’t follow. Would not recommend.
