Art of Advertising — at the Opel dealership, 1953.


Opel advertisement, 1953, via retrogasm.

“Excuse me? I wanted to talk to someone about this car.”

“You’ve got a good eye! Safe, sturdy car that looks great on the road.”

“And the girls?”

“Standard with every one of our vehicles. Now, brunette is stock. For another $175, we can upgrade you to blondes.”

“Sounds pretty good, but what have you got in redheads?”

(Laughs, pats the car’s hood affectionately.) “Oh! I’m afraid that technology is years in the future.”

I am a dreamer.
