Somebody put a stopwatch on this young upstart.
Snyder likes the cut of his jib.
I learned something today. Namely, that in 1958, NFL broadcasts were sponsored by Marlboro and America was an awesome place to be. Just watching this old commercial makes me want to drive a Packard, drink scotch and listen to be-bop on the Hi-Fi.
Pay special attention to the cartoon mascots of the era:
- The Redskins mascot: probably the most racist thing in the history of Western Civilization. If D.W. Griffith had been alive when this thing was made, he would have said "are you sure we can't tone this down a scoch?"
- The Packers proxy is a cleaver wielding maniac. How did Marlboro anticipate Jeffrey Dahmer's reign of terror in Wisconsin?
- True story: the Cleveland Browns mascot is played by a young Dennis Kucinich.
- As this commercial was made during the twentieth century, there is no reference to a Boston pro football franchise.
