Who trims their yard using a freaking flamethrower? I'm sure the ad is accurate in stating that it incinerates weeds... and, I'm guessing by the picture, also small animals and children. This is a weapon, not a garden tool! Did they throw in a free bottle of Napalm with a purchase?
I can't help but be reminded of a scene from Spaceballs...
"Moichandising! Moichandising! Where the real money from the movie is made. Spaceballs: the T-shirt, Spaceballs: the Coloring Book, Spaceballs: the Lunchbox, Spaceballs: the Breakfast Cereal. Spaceballs: the Flame Thrower!"
BTW: The ad is from a July 1970 issue of Popular Mechanics
