Six Joe Camel ads

Seeing this cartoon character didnt motivate me to try Camels at all.  Talking to a few ladies who smoked em in my college days did.  Older generations had the Kool Penguin.  My generation saw Joe Camel in Camel ads from 1988 to 1997.

Classical cig ads with celebs

These ads are obviously from the pre-1960s era (maybe mo like pre-'50s era).  Since BT was banned from using celebs in their ads in 1964. 

BT did a neat job in making cigs sound like they are GOOD for your health in 1920s-1940s cig ads.   Of course, all brands in that era were tiny nonfiltered cigs.
BT actually continued to make cigs sound just as safe as candy bars in the 60s and 70s.

Three random 70s cig ads

I actually remember seeing an ad for wintergreen-flavored cigs from tje 70s once.  But the wintergreen cig ad I saw had a Black man in it holding the cig.  And the ad included the pack of the actual brand of course.

Six cig ads from the 80s

One of these 80s ads include the CAMEL Man.  I remember the Marlboro Man a lot more.  But I forgot Camel had a male model as well in the 70s and 80s.  The Camel Man wasnt dressed as a cowboy though.
