The Golden Days of Cigarette Advertising

Phillip Morris sponsored I Love Lucy which scored them a pitch from Lucille Ball herself — “Don’t say cigarette! Say Phillip Morris!” Legend has it (read: Wikipedia) that Lucy put Chesterfields in Phillip Morris boxes during filming, so she could smoke her favorite brand without upsetting the sponsors.

A few more choice favorites:

Viceroy (feat. Steve McQueen)

Winston – The Flintstones compilation
