    I always thought the typography was trying to bring “Blow” and “Up” together to evoke the movie of that name or something.

    Did this ad run before 1966? I remember it from the ’70s.

    Toronto: Here it is in 1972

    Here is one from 1969

    1968 as well so yeah, I’d say you are in the ballpark.

    Whomever wrote that ad must have been in a hurry, they give no information on color posters and they don’t mention if that address on the bottom is where you send the pictures. Maybe the color posters and B&W posters were the same price.

    Yaos, maybe you read it too fast. It’s clear to me that 2 x 3 foot color posters are $14.95 and 2 x 3 foot B&W are $3.95 and as far as not knowing whether the only address provided in the ad is the one you should use….are you kidding???

    Turns out that the company is still there.

    I remember this ad, and the humorous reading!

    In the 60s, my small-town newspaper ran an ad from a local beauty shop who’d hired a new beautician. The copy was something like “xxx Salon welcomes Angie, specializing in hair cutting and blowing.”

    Rick, you reminded me of a television telethon I worked on, one of the hosts was describing one of the auctions. She said, “…a haircut and a blow job.” Everyone started cracking up and we lost control of the show for a few seconds, we had two or three wise asses call in and want to bid on it.

    Mike, that reminds me of this classic Shepard Smith blooper:…

    Blow up your TV, throw away your paper, go to the country, build you a home.
    Plant a little garden, eat a lot of peaches, try and find Jesus on your own.

    I knew that topless lady, she had something up her sleeve
