Why just say Merry Christmas when you can say “Happy Smoking” – 200 times!? This ad is truly a gem, not just because it’s a cigarette commercial, but because the spokeswoman actually acknowledges the package designer by name. Now that’s something you never see.
You’ll notice the slogan “It’s Toasted” in the beginning of the spot. It was used to remind consumers that Lucky Strike tobacco was manufactured using a toasting process (as opposed to sun-drying), which was supposed to make the cigarettes more pleasing to the palate. (Source: Wikipedia)
