3. Larger version on next page. The woman in the forground has an awesome tan
from a sun lamp, while the poor, pasty white, grumpy lady does not.

7. Natural beauty.
No tanning-bed tan, no surgical enhancement. Not even worked-out to within an inch of her life. And a fine example of concealing being sexier than revealing...

8. Is the Reagan Chesterfield ad in there?
The worst Christmas ad of all time is the one where St. Ronnie claimed he was giving all his friends cartons of cigarettes...in an era when a carton of cigarettes cost less than $5 retail and $2 in truckload quantities like needed for this, and Reagan was making millions as an entertainment figure.
Translation: not only do I not care about your health, I'm a cheap bastard.

10. Why is Santa handing gifts up?
The whole ad is contrived. She is just on an upper rung to bend down to show a bulb? Just how did her dress get hung up? She tried to climb on the tree? AND YES, Santa really needs to be looking up, geez.
