70's TaB Ad (Were They Kidding?)

70's TaB Ad (Were They Kidding?)

"When you can't be with him/Be in his mind/Be a mind sticker." Ah, TaB. The 70's diet cola favored by Stepford Wives, anorexic teens, and insecure women everywhere! This 1977 television spot manages to be dumb, enraging and spooky all at once. It will also have you wondering if it's possible to punch a voice-over in the face. Enjoy!

So creepy in so many ways. Love the soft, hazy light on this one. Who's going to kill that wife? Her kid or her husband? Equally likely!

Hmmm be a mind sticker....did they not have a thesaurus...could they not think or anything better? That was so creepy,like a horror movie before the killing.

And the first time, I totally didn't hear "shape"... I heard "shave" -Bug

If I'm right, the TAB sold today is just an energy drink. I don't think they make the diet cola. ...it also mixes well with liquor, I hear :p I guess some can still be mindstickers -Bug

WTF! This is mega-disturbing! I think everyone involved with this ad was dropping LSD.

Karebear, they DO sell Tab....a lady in our office drinks it. In fact, I think the entire Junior League in our city drinks it. I seriously can't believe this is a real ad! What is a mind sticker? And keeping your shape has its rewards? Gimme a break!

Yikes! A mind sticker? How about a mind sucker? I feel like that voice is trying to brainwash me...I suddenly feel like back combing my hair, walking through a field of daisies searching for prince charming ...

WOW! amazing to be equally horrified and amused by a commercial. Now I have a mind sticker I am not sure I will be able to scrape off all day!
