How many leches — and gullible boys — sent away for these X-ray specs? Must have been a lot because I remember seeing this ad in the back of magazines and comic books for years and years.
"Take off all your clothes, doll. It's okay, I'm an artist."
This vintage ad is from before my time. It promises to teach you hypnotism and how to "bend people to your will, banish fear, worry and opposition." I think the men who sent away for this had on their mind something other than making young women cluck like a chicken.
This ad promises to teach you how to hypnotize a person without her knowing about it. Pretty sure that was already illegal when this ad ran.
1960s ads for hair color that covers gray and rinses that make gray look better — though when we baby boomers were kids, we all knew at least one silver-haired woman whose gray hair looked kinda blueish.
No amount of hair dye is going to make up for the helmethead hairstyles below.
