Selling Me In Black And White

Some of these Black and White commercials - well, most of them - are before my time, but they're funny because some are so slowly paced compared to the commercials and advertisements that we see today.

I admit, I don't quite know if telling the viewer that the paper napkin staying in place on their lap is a huge selling point, but it makes for an interesting commercial. Note the housewife who appears to be on some sort of tranquilizer prescription drug, especially when she first sees Manners The Butler.

Nor do I fully grasp what dancing chickens have to do with selling me HiLex, but apparently there's a connection.

And note the State-Of-The-Art Scientific evidence and diagram used to tell us why we should buy Bufferin instead of ordinary aspirin. Who can argue with science and technology like that?
