Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Anybody else miss those old ‘educational’ cigarette adverts?

It’s an art form I’ve mentioned before, cigarette adverts based on medical facts from the industry.

I spotted one I hadn’t seen before, promoting the benefits of smoking cigarettes for mother AND baby.

Quality material.

Nice 🙂

Smoking Birth Weight

Winston is probably one of my most hated brands.

Not because of smoking or tobacco, but because of truly irritating little song they had a woman with loud and grating voice sing back in the good old days of radio, where she just keeps singing that catch catchphrase at the foot of the ad ‘Winston tastes good! Like a cigarette should!” over and over, like brainwashing.

Unfortunately, while many OTR (old time radio) show providers have cut many of the irritating adverts of the day from their programmes, this song is one that often seem to survive, and blasts out repeatedly during breaks in the programmes.
