Classic late 1960s Levy’s ad by Doyle Dane Bernbach.
It bothers a lot of people today.
Via the 1960s for the Rice Council of America.
True Story: The first ad agency I worked for had a shady spa as a client. One of their treatments was a full body “weight loss” wrap. (You just lost water weight).
Our headline on the ad featuring a sexy, curvy fully wrapped woman — “Have you ever seen a fat mummy?” They bought it.
