Tobacco advertising has got to be one of the most morally questionable industries out there.
It seems these advertisers would stop at nothing to exploit every possible resource – all in name of peddle their wares. A few victims of tobacco advertisements include celebrities, doctors, children, the military, Christmas, nostalgia, cartoon characters, and of course everyone’s favorite – sex. I suppose all in all not much has changed.
But in all their morally questionable motives these advertisers did manage to create some beautiful works of art. This is why I’ve assembled my favorite 40 vintage tobacco advertisements for your enjoyment.
It should go without saying that these are for inspirational purposes only. We here at WellMedicated do not condone the messages of any of these ads – we merely think they’re purrrdy.
