Roman Around

combating liberalism and other childish notions

Once upon a time, Super Bowl commercials weren’t exactly super. Of course, Super Bowl ads weren’t quite as pristigious as they are today. Products like mint shaving cream, Bic ballpoint pens and Clamato flavored juice from Motts aren’t exactly the type of products we have come to associate with Super Bowl advertising.

Forty-one years ago, when the Colts and Jets met in Super Bowl III, the primary products advertised during the NBC broadcast were not cars and beer.

It was cigarettes.

Here is a sampling of some of the commercials that aired forty years ago during the broadcast of Super Bowl III. (There’s only one cigarette commercial included).

This is the fourth of four clips I am sharing from the Super Bowl III broadcast. 

It is 4 minutes, 29 seconds long.
