Frankfurters For The Holidays!

I love the internet. It gave me this classic ad, for a holiday Frankfurter dish courtesy of “Mrs. Damon Runyon!”

Note the “Creamed diced carrots in onion cups” that go along with it…and after a fine meal like that on Christmas day, you need a smoke!

Classic Celebrity Holiday Smoking Ads!

As you can see, everything we love is on the internet – like these holiday cigarette ads with celebrities shilling cartons of smokes as a holiday gift!

Can you imagine that today? Still, really funny to see these classic ads pop up – and there are tons of ads showing celebs shilling smokes all year long as well, like this one with John Wayne:

After all that food and smoking, you may need an Alka-Seltzer – don’t worry, Sammy Davis Jr. has you covered:

  3. I was a Lucky Strike smoker, until 2012. Always my favourite cigarette.
    And for some reason, those bright red frankfurters are making my mouth water! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
