Barclay cigs lady ad
Barclay is a discontinued brand which was introduced by Brown & Williamson (the original makers of Kools) in 1966. B&W marketed the brand as a low tar/low nic cig.
But in reality, when a smoker covers up the filter vent holes, he/she is inhaling a lot more tar and nic than 1 mg tar/0.1 mg nic as stated from the FTC.
These stats started appearing in '71 cig ads and I believe the FDA forced BT to stop using this misleading info in 2010. Since the FTC measured tar and nic in cigs with machines that "smoked" the cigs. A human smokes (and even holds) a cig a lot differently than a darn machine.
