I was surfing the net for images to use for a project and I came across a site that traces Camel Adds from its beginning.
I’ve always been interested in the history of advertisement. Not just for the sake of its visual means but in how they are molded by the culture around them; and at the same time they define the cultural norm. The science of advertisement is cut throat - they want your attention just with in a glance and they want you to buy, the glance there after.
Anyways, here are some images tracing the history of the beloved Turkish Blend.
1920's - This is when they started advertising toward young women, until then some states did not allow women to smoke at all.
Camel begins to use real photo's to make it more believable and athelets to "promote a healthy image".

Emily and I ran around all day in preparation for this party. Em, I think our shirts turned out after all the craziness...we had bought these iron-letters, which ended up ruining our shirts. So in the final count down till the party, Emily ran to Walmart, picked up new materials, I cut the letters out and we sewed "Ho" on our sweaters...completing them seconds before the party. Totally tedious.

Click here to see article.
The truth of the matter is, I listen to these albums, that Vincent reviews, for a week straight.
So I do hope that some of you are enjoying these articles,
for the sake of my pain of listening to these albums over and over and over...
and all I want to do is put on 'A Charlie Brown Christmas'.
