Vintage Playboy Ads #2

I recently posted some old-school-ridiculous ads from vintage Playboy magazines here and thought “Why not make this a regular thing?”, so today I present to you more vintage Playboy ads. This time, we’re setting the time machine’s controls to take us back to March 1977.

Wrangler really tried to step back from that rugged cowboy image in favor of something more “Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway’s Bonnie and Clyde Meets Captain Fantastic”. Incidentally, 350 Fifth Avenue is the Empire State Building, but, alas, Wrangler has moved their headquarters to Greensboro, NC since this ad ran. Also, the slogan “Wremember, the ‘W’ is Silent”?

Gross. Nothing, in my mind, says “1970s Venereal Disease Vector” quite like these wooden hot tubs. Or, as I call them, “The Devil’s Chowder”.

 

I knew that ITT had scammed a lot of gullible people via their tech schools and that they’d overthrown the government of Chile, but I didn’t know that they made camera flashes. So, there, I learned something new today.

“Panasonic says you should violate FCC regulations”

Stop! Your creepy smoker’s eyes are staring into my soul!
