1966 - an anti-smoking ad !
Everyone smoked in 1966, or so it seemed. I tried it myself but thankfully never got hooked, and being a pretentious young movie buff, the brand I had to be seen with was those French Gauloises or cool Menthol, trendy or what? ..... here is an amusing ad from the back page of a 1966 "Films & Filming" magazine .... I hope it got some to give up that disgusting habit .... and buy a nice record player instead ! (you may need a magnifying glass to read the text...)
