— THE SOCIETY OF THE SPECTACLE

PSYCHEDELIC ADVERTISING

Andrew Andrew, those purveyors of New York cool, brightened my morning with this little clip via Twitter, all from the 1960’s.

I love how ad agencies then (and now) jumped on the youth explosion to sell the most unglamorous products. It’s not like this has changed dramatically since as a way of selling, but from a standpoint of over 40 years, these have a charm and strangeness all of their own.
