1930: Lucky smokers haunted by fat tar-colored doppelgängers.


(click ads) Big Tobacco can only longingly ache for the days when they were allowed to so audaciously promote their cigs as healthy, tasty toasted diet snacks. Love the disclaimer at the bottom which reads: "We do not say smoking Luckies reduces flesh. We do say when tempted to over-indulge, reach for a Lucky instead."

SHAMEFUL!!!

And the legacy goes on especially with today's young girls who continue to smoke thinking it helps to suppress their appetite.
