What makes old television so compelling…especially the advertising. Is it the innocence? The lack of guile and uber slick psychological manipulation we get nowadays? Or is it the fact that they couldn’t care less about jump cuts and fast talking sales pitches in those days?
Whatever it is, we love them with a passion, and even more so when the subject matter is as banal as anti-perspirant and bandages. Why can’t we all return to this bygone age, when peaches were fuzzy and men took pride in banging iron ore into stunningly indulgent gas guzzlers with more chrome than a room full of Google engineers.
