Videotheke pointed me to some nice Television Commercials of the 50s-60s:

And while I was at it, I went to Google and found some more, from 1948:

This is the thing with the web: all of a sudden it is possible to find stuff from way-back-when. Companies can’t control it. Some of the companies in these commercials might be out of business, or their (product-) strategy changed. Tough luck.

On the other hand: this way these companies had people interact with their brand, even though with a rather old brand character. Which leads me to „last but not least“: gosh, it’s amazing how advertising changed over the years. Some of these spots are just awful. But back then, they must have been state of the art.
