Three Camel ads from the year 2000

Camel ads from 2000. 

If you come across cig ads at all in the modern era, they're likely gonna be ads for Newport and Camel. You certainly not gonna come across modern ads for Marlboros, Virginia Slims, BHs, and any other Philip Morris-made brand.

  Modern Camel ads dont have ladies (or men) in em at all.  Just the pack with the cigs hanging out.

Three Tareyton ads

I believe Tareytons existed in the 80s....I aint sure.

I do know there was a Cambridge cig brand in the 80s-90s era.  And the Cambridge pack looked a lot similar to a Tareyton pack.

"Us Tareyton smokers would rather fight tan switch!"  I do remember reading this slogan when I saw Tareyton ads in mags during my earlier life.

These 3 ads are all from the 60s.

Two cig ads and one TV guy with a cigar

The cigar man is Carroll O'Connor (as Archie Bunker) from All in the Family.  A TV show from the 70s.  The two ads are More and Newport ads from the 0s as well.

3 Menthol ads from the 60s

Oasis is likely a menthol brand from the 60s but it ws no longer on the market by the time I was a boy two decades later.  There were a lot mo cig brands on the market in the ol days.

Original ads for Marlboro Red 100s/Marlboro Lights

In this batch of three ads for the week, I found an ad for Marlboro Reds 100s when they first came out in '67.  I still remember seeing those gold packs for Red 100s as late as '97!

I also found a Marlboro Lights ad from '72.  The same year when MLs were introduced in general.

The other ad is a Benson and Hedges ad from the 70s.  From the days when PM had the "bent" BHs within the ads.  In the 80s, PM changed the BH slogan to "For people who like to smoke.." and stopped the "America's Favorite Cig Break" campaign.

Two pre-1960s cig ads

The chesterfield ad has former US President Ronald Reagan.  He was a  movie actor during the 40s-50s era (according to my understanding).  I  never heard of a nonfiltered brand called Virginia from that era as well.   But of course, most cigs were nonfilters back in those days.

1940s cig ads with women

This was really the last full decade of all cig brands being nonfilters.  Since filtered cig brands started hitting the market in bundles by the LATE 50's.   Even in the nonfilter era, BT still found a way to have women in their ads.
