“It Gets Better” — The Print Advertising Edition

The year was 1976.  The client was Faberge Fragrances.  And the advertising creatives were no doubt male and abundantly mustached.  This was their magic.

Never has a headline provided such an unwittingly accurate assessment.

Dennis Ryan, Element 79, Chicago Advertising

“Powerful” indeed.  If. for some unknown reason, vintage phallo-centric advertising is your thing, you can find the ad for sale on eBay here: the first ten bucks (plus three for shipping) will get it.

But I never will.
