Vintage Ad of the Day

More tanning oil:


Small text reads:
You've seen the women of St. Tropez. They're sleek and exciting, and when they walk into the cafe at 10 o'clock at night, the whole cafe puts down its wine and stops to stare.

Well, their tan can be your tan. With Bain de Soliel. Its unique French formula is lush and rich, and you can get it in Dark Creme or Lotion for fast, dark tanning. White Creme for graceful, more controlled tanning. And new Super Filter for extra sunscreen protection.

Then, after your day in the sun, smooth on Apres le Soleil. The moisturizers will help keep your St. Tropez tan rich and even. For extra days. And extra nights.

I don't know. I would think a whole cafe stopping what they're doing to stare at you wouldn't necessarily be a good thing. And does this really happen for all the women of St. Tropez?

They must not get a lotta wine-drinkin' done in St. Tropez.

I'd stop and stare and be thinking, "Daaaaaamn! Can't wait to see how leathery and wrinkled she looks when she's 50!"
