Is this the Most Outrageous Cigarette Ad Ever? The Ad Is From August 1950. Wanna Guess What Publication It’s From?

Please click here to see in what magazine we found this ad.



  1. No, it’s not. Not even close. Ronald Regan did ads for Chesterfield Cigarettes. Then there were the ads with pictures of “doctors” and the statement that 9 out of 10 doctors recommend Lucky Strikes. (At least I seem to recall it was Luckys… Could have been Camels.)

    • HI Scott…I think the ads you are thinking of were the ones that said “According to a national survey, more doctors smoke Camels than any other cigarette.” But this ad gave us a real start because we had never recalled seeing a baby used in an ad to promote a major cigarette brand.
