13 "Healthy" Cigarette Ads

Back in the day, smoking actually prolonged life.

1. Putting “100 years old” in a cig ad, oh how devious.

2. Most people are familiar with this classic ad. Note that the number has been “certified.”

3. Doctors doctors, everywhere…

4. Sure, throw a dentist in the mix, too.

5. “A feeling of well-being” — the “for digestion’s sake” was a long-running Camel campaign that featured many athletes.

6. This is my favorite “for digestion’s sake” ad. A smoking smoke-eater.

7. The cure for the common cold (see nurse’s copy).

8. Gotta stay ahead of your fat, tar-colored doppelgänger.

10. More fat, tar-colored ghosts. The appetite suppressing properties of tobacco haven’t gone out of style, of course.

11. Pall Mall produced a series of ads with illustrations of healthy-looking fruit to sell their taste.

13. “No curative power is claimed…but” we’re going to claim it anyway.
