Dateline 1963: With the confluence of a full-throttle space race and a car named Galaxie, the Ford marketing department found a way to attract moms and dads to the showroom. to giving him a giant lollipop
Start by having the little angel climb out of the trunk.
Let him climb behind the wheel…
…and finally, stick a huge lollipop in front of him that he can’t lick as long as he’s taking pictures…
Now this makes me want one of those orange Outspan vehicles right now! (https://www.alleewillis.com/awmok/kitschenette/2010/02/21/outspan-drive/).
The only trip to outer space that anyone’s gonna be taking in a 1963 Ford Galaxy is this little boy when mommy gets distracted trying to get that bubble offa his head so he can breathe and hits a fire hydrant sending the kid flying.
With all of the safety precautions taken in cars today it’s astounding to look at this ad now. Absolutely everything is wrong about it from sticking the kid in the trunk to letting him flop around the entire fold-down-seat back of the car to no kiddie seat to sitting in the front seat to giving him a giant lollipop so it can jam down his throat as he hits the dashboard flying through the front window.
hahahah!!! yeah! i had the same thoughts just looking at this…safety, anyone!?! at least he’s wearing a helmet!!!!
