Extra rich sources of vitamins B1 and D, as well as a big heaping serving of speed and whatever was in the Florida Orange juice ad a couple days ago.
PEP!!!! MUST EAT PEP!!! WHERE'S THE PEP?!?!? DAMMIT AUNTIE, GIMME SOME PEP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
To get the proper effect, imagine the voices recorded on an LP and played back at 78.
For some reason I read the text first. And I saw twins and pictured little kids. It was quite a WTF moment when I got a load of the "kids" in question.
On the other hand, the characters in the ad aren't airbrushed representations of industry-defined beauty, so there's that, at least.
Ever since I hit 45, I've become the voice of reason and normality. It totally sucks. :-(
Vintage Ads: Your sanity break.
Never give in! Rage, rage against the dying of the insanity!

Onwards, against the Jell-O, LJ mess ups, disrespect of our patron saints, and -isms o' the ads!

(Edit regarding how often LJ could fail us.) :p

I'm *cough49cough* and I refuse to let a little thing like age get between me and fun! Life's too short! She who laughs, lasts, and all that jazz! :D

This can't be real. The faces have to be photoshopped.

Otherwise I am seriously freaked out, lol.
They say they have PEP every morning, but they don't say when. My guess, judging by the manic laughing face of twin #2, that their "morning" is around 3:00 AM when they just got home from the bars.

I don't think it's 'pep' per se, I think it's alcohol.

Isn't this part of a sequence...a title and more panels before and after in the same ad? Can we see the full bizness?
Re: It's even more frightening in context!
Thanks! Thought I recognized it from a Life mag at home. I'm thinking Aunt Ollie's a bundle of firecracker fun. Wear a boy out.
Re: It's even more frightening in context!
The woman holding the box reminds me of the Queen from "Alice In Wonderland" -- "sentence first, verdict later!"
Re: It's even more frightening in context!
And the three of them remind me of Cinderella's evil stepmother/sisters.
Geez! O_O That cereal is either loaded down with sugar or speed (or both)!
