Now that PBR is a hipster beer, I wonder if they will revive this old ad campaign which is like some Twilight Zone

Not embeddable, but definitely worth a visit to Facebook.
If you enjoy old school comics, especially by the master, Jack Kirby, you'll want to purchase the volume depicted at right. It's full of Silver Age weirdness in the unselfconscious manner of the day.
Here's my favorite example, from the story titled "I Was Big-Game on Neptune."
An Earthman is kidnapped and finds himself in prison with five other beings, all uniquely bizarre. Pretty hard to mistake one for another, right?

Did you know that there were non-human Barbie dolls? Maybe if I were the parent of a little girl, this would be old news to me. But it's not. And to my eyes, it's weird.
