Ads #67: 1981
Don't hate on me for saying this, but Mrs. Clooney looked like a man in 1981. Look, I wasn't exactly Cary Grant in '81 either, so I won't pass judgment - we all have our awkward looking years. Clooney was a good looking gal in her prime - in 1981 she was 53.
I dig the short shorts and the sweatbands.... and the look of the can that screams "SUGAR FREE!". I'd love to work out in a Sugar Free Dr. Pepper running suit for $9.75 (suggested retail price $24 - what a bargain!).

Notice how the ad says that Phenylpropanolamine "has been found safe" yet was taken off the shelves for causing hemorrhagic stroke in about 500 people per year. It's also a great way to make meth.
High Point was Folger's answer to Sanka and eventually morphed into Folger's Crystals. It's mainly remembered for the Lauren Bacall commercials. Remember: "Rushing for an eight 'o clock curtain every night means giving up a lot of things - but coffee ISN'T ONE OF 'EM!"
Shopping for "Hardy Mums". Note that "Prices slightly higher west of Denver."
