Camel Ad: Are you a Humming Bird? (Jul, 1934)

This seems to be a bit of a contradiction: “and watch your smoking… Remember, you can smoke as many Camels as you want.”

Are you a Humming Bird?

It’s irritating and it means… jangled nerves

Yes, it’s irritating to listen to that constant, tuneless humming—and more than that, the humming is a sign of jangled nerves.

If you notice any of those telltale nervous habits in yourself— if you whistle through your teeth—drum on the table —then it’s time to start taking care of yourself.

Whoever rebranded Marlboro to the red and white boxes could not possibly have been paid enough. It looks like someone scrawled on the box with a red sharpie.

Also, nowadays any copywriter who tried to put the word “habit” in a cigarette ad would not have a job for very long.
