'50 Kool Cigarette Commercial

Flashback: '50s Cigarette Commercial

The smokers of the 1950s had no idea just how harmful lighting up could be. At the time, there was no hard evidence to definitively link cigarette use with chronic or fatal health conditions, so tobacco companies had free reign to claim that their "snow fresh, filtered cool" smokes would leave the throat feeling refreshed and clean. Hmm. Is that what throat cancer feels like? I can only imagine. (Want more old-fashioned cigarette propaganda? Click here.)

Kool's are amazingly refreshing on the throat. I remember when I smoked how it felt. Ahh the good ol' days...
