Vintage Christmas Ads Pt. 12 - B.V.D., 1950

In addition to collecting Christmas music, I have collected nearly 1000 vintage Christmas ads over the years. Many of these include celebrities, radio, television, cigarettes, liquor, modern appliances, and the like.

Every Friday from here until I run out, I will feature an ad from my collection.

I invite you to add a fun comment, witticism, clever remark, or observation in the comments section provided. Any comments deemed worthy of repeating will be included into this entry where all the world will see it.

A long while ago, I posted an underwear Christmas ad that got zero comments. So I wasn't sure whether or not to post ANOTHER underwear Christmas ad in my collection.

Sure, I could have chosen another ad - radio, TV, cigarettes, liquor, and appliance ads are plentiful in my collection. Not to mention celebrity , Christmas movies, and others that should pique someone's interest.

However, this underwear ad is more playful! More bright! More cheery! More festive! Everything a Christmas underwear ad should be and then some!

What oh what can it B.V.D.?

There's so much I want to say and so much I could say. But I ain't gonna do it. I await your comments...

What do you think?

Jeffco Productions says: Yeah, that one's kind of perplexing, Capt... But then again, it does come with it's own Christmas box...

Ernie says: Ah, the old ball-n-chain...

Stubby says: They look a little bit like Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore doing a number on the Alan Brady Show, don't they?


Any other opinions?

A Christmas package of comfort...

Ernie, that was precisely my thought. But you thought it first.

They look a little bit like Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore dooing a number on the Alan Brady Show, don't they?
