"Droodles" sounds ugly, like "drool." And these jokes are fit only to entertain an eight-year-old. Excellent campaign to indicate quality of product and sophistication of audience.

After our look at Murad cigarettes, here's another brand of the period. I wonder how well they would sell in today's geopolitical climate? And isn't there something sacrilegious about naming your product after another religion's sacred gods?

Follies of the Mad Men #109



The dancing cigarette pack always reminds me of the moment on The Simpsons when the sexy legs protruding from a basketball mascot costume were shown to belong to good old male Gil.
