Mad Men Montage Spotlights Old Cigarette Ads

In honor of this weekend’s premiere of the fifth season of Mad Men, the folks at nostalgia magazine Reminisce have racked up a very tasty slide show.

Various now politically incorrect print ads from the 1960s have been dug up and married with some right-margin, Don Draper-worthy patter. There are sixteen slides in all, including a trio of anachronistic cigarette pitches.

A thinking man’s filter!? Kudos to Reminisce for coming up with a great way to piggyback on the AMC juggernaut. To view the commented ads for Chesterfield tobacco, Lucky Strike cigarettes and more, click here.
