This is different from most VS ads of the day. I love the idea of a tool kit as a premium even if the tools look a bit cheap. I like the overall tone of the ad, too. Some of it may seem condescending today, but I'm sure it seemed empowering then.

LOL! Is that a passive way to say that you are ugly and you should hide your face in a construction site?

It seems strange to see these sort of ads now. It just goes to show how times and attitudes have changed.

Virginia Slims are much narrower (23mm circumference) than ordinary cigarettes (hence, "Slims"), and are also longer than normal "king-sized" cigarettes (which are 85mm), sold only in longer 100mm and 120mm lengths, to give the cigarettes a more "elegant" appearance and ostensibly to reduce the amount of smoke they produce. They are also sold in "Superslims", "light," "ultra-light," and menthol varieties.
