Benson and Hedges 100s in 1967 (film #14 in the Cigarette Advertising on TV section of TVParty). [Category: Commercial]

I remember this series of Benson and Hedges commercials that feature hapless smokers struggling to get used to their new longer cigarettes. Like the text on the TVParty site says, the real surprise here is seeing how many places it used to be acceptable to smoke, such as one’s desk at the office, a closed Volkswagen, while talking, or even in an elevator, for God’s sake! Sometimes change is good, I think.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: *****. Overall Rating: ****.
