Buygone Ad: Tab 1969—"be a Mindsticker"

(click ad to read copy)
Also, be a dicklicker. "When you can't be with him, be in his mind. Have a shape he can't forget..." Nice retro mindfuck from the Tab folks, ladies. Yep. You wanna stick in the big-headed senator's mind (He looks like a senator, right? That, or a marketing executive.), eat nothing and drink horrible-tasting Tab. As a bonus, it gives you the shits! update: here's the accompanying Tab TV spot featuring the "Mindsticker" theme, thanks jetpacks. (image via) previous soft drink ads: Canta Wanta Fanta. Jay Mohr for Diet Pepsi.

And here is the AWESOME TV counterpart, complete with plaintiff female singer singing some hard to believe lyrics over a harp. Scary shit.

So, it's not the Windsong that stays on his mind?

No wonder he never calls.

that's even more spot on than being a senator.
Love the protractor. Does anyone still have one of those?
