Triptych

I came across this cigarette print ad in a December, 1963 NY Giants program.

There’s the mirror which is part of the central theme of being a role model. Smoking is equated with masculinity. A role model serves as a reflection of manhood. Also interesting is the placement of the image of the standing ash tray in the mirror over the electric outlet. Advertising is all you need to travel through the looking glass.
