Another entry for Karen’s Scientist Pin-Up contest. Though this 1967 ad for cigarettes features a lab technician, not a scientist (everyone knows that being a PI leads to a wandering womb), she is wearing glasses and a white coat. But with that blank stare, she doesn’t look brainy, she looks like she wants BRAAIIIIINS.
Underneath that pocket of pencils there beats the heart of a digital computer. This girl has already catalogued and cross-indexed the Tiparillo slim, elegant shape. And the neat, white tip. She knows that there are two Tiparillos. Regular, for a mild smoke. Or new Tiparillo M with menthol, for a cold smoke. She knows. She’s programmed. And she’s ready. But how about you? Which Tiparillo are you going to offer? Or are you just going to stand there and stare at her pencils?
AIEEE! She’s programmed…TO EAT YOUR BRAINS AND DECORATE HER LAB WITH YOUR VISCERA!
