Brilliant!
What no one figured out is that HE was asking HER...

Yeah, I think you're right. She was a 40-something trust-funder. He was a 20-something tennis pro.

She was the first cougar.

Reminds me of blonde Cig chick (Anna) before she got married and sold her gun.

My favorite has always been this one of the mature woman looking over the top of the engine hatch with the younger guy at the helm looking back over his shoulde wearing a Rolex. There were actually two versions done (one in the 80's and one in the 90's...this one is the 80's version...Sorry for the crappy quality, it's a photo of a photo in Phils office). There was just something understated about the ad. No catch phrase, no descriptions....Pretty much just summed it up.


Cigarette's advertising is missed....

But I hear there may be something in the works...??
