3. Judging by the artwork, and (LOL) prices, that's late-1960s...
And, thankfully, people were just as tacky back then! :wow:

:rofl:

2. I can't do that (it's a radio spot) but I'm bewildered that the official multivitamin of MLB
(Major League Baseball in non-subjectlinespeak) is One-A-Day Men's 50+ Advantage. They have an ad they run on sports radio late at night featuring a voice actor playing an umpire of 30 years experience. I don't wonder if they were sober; I wonder a) how freaking desperate MLB is to find sponsors to be willing to take on a Centrum wannabe; and how long it took the ad agency to come up with the script. ("Let's see, the players are nearly all under 40, some of the managers aren't 50 yet... I got it! An old umpire who needs multivitamins!")

Yeah I know, weak, but it really strikes me as odd.
