Women: check out "Cosmopolitan" magazine's first ever UK TV ad, 1972.

Hel-lo, insulting sexism—"she's a man, baby!" (say in Austin Powers voice).
Check out that sell copy:
"A sensational new magazine for women who are interested in men, love, fashion, food, men, travel, films, beauty and themselves … and men."
Previously: The Daily Telegraph—"the man's paper that women read."

I like this. Still kinda holds up. But why is there a brit dude VO when the women speak (with the exception of the last)?

after some 3 years without reading your blog (and having changed computer, losing bookmarks) i forgot the name of the blog. Wanna know how i got here? I typed on google: "blog advertising i hate capri pants"
Here I am! :)
Glad to see the blog is still ON (despite the sad news...)
Wish you all the best my friend. Stay strong.
