When Advertising Lied Harder: The 1970s Love Rug.

(click ad to read copy)
"As you stroke, it strokes....It's almost like having another lover there with the two of you." 150 bucks?!? In the 70s? It better fucking stroke me. And how 'bout the Willie Aames look-a-like? update: commenter says that's porn star Randy West. previously: 1936—Schlitz is better for you than sunshine; 1968—think of this American Airlines stewardess as a MILF; 1972—amateur porn is born; 1960s—Schaefer is the one beer to have when the liquor store is out of every other brand.

OK, color me ashamed, but that's Randy West, a dude that has been in porn forever. I think he's still making movies.

$150 in 1974 (or whenever) dollars? Holy shit.

Surprised the copy doesn't include, "The Love Rug is perfect for carpet-munchers."

Randy West, star of 1,125 films, is still "performing."

But he stopped directing two years ago.

But can you imagine getting the stains out of a 30 year old Love Rug for when they make the sequel?

I don't think I'll ever be able to think of the word MINK again without the word STROKIN' and that guy's face.

David Hasselhoff would make a good actor for the movie about Mr. West's life. But I don't see Hollywood doing one. Maybe Paul Verhoeven...
