The graphic above was sent in from a sadvertising reader who also happens to be an "ad guy" - it's an ad for a 70s/80s brand of clothing called "Cricketeer."
I'm not the only person to blog this old ad. The thing is as disturbing as it is brilliant. Great idea hiring a contortionist model to prove the stretch and fit of a traditionally stifling corporate uniform.
But I wonder - is there a shot with the guy holding a lighter? Yeah yeah...you thought it too.
"Hey guys! Gimme a match! Quick! Quick!....FOOOooOOOFF!"
Even better ad if they would have given the pants a flame resistant panel. Then they would have finally created Church Clothes that every 13 year old boy would covet.
"Hey! You've got fart pants! Cool!"
Note: A sadvertising reader commented that the ad promised that "anything you can do OUT of a suit, you can do IN a suit." So that leads me to wonder if there was anyone who wondered, "Gee. I sure wish I could get my head near my butt while I'm wearing my office clothes."
