Advertising fascinates me...how the folks who made Chesterfields thought this low key rumination on the choice of ciggies and train safety compelled a reader to change brands is beyond me. The date of the ad is 1934.
"I want to be just like the engineer...I wonder what kind of beer he drinks?"
But then those Axe commercial sin which wimpy nerds get sex appeal by spraying a manly fragrance is just as inexplicable.
Side note: I was at my favorite watering hole and a young woman said I smelled good. I stopped putting on after-shave once I grew the beard and told her so. She smiled said that I "smelled clean." There's a concept.
