Girls Can't Resist This KISS ME NECKTIE As It GLOWS In The Dark!

BY DAY, A LOVELY SWANK TIE...BY NIGHT, A CALL TO LOVE IN GLOWING WORDS!

MEN...BOYS...Now amaze your friends! Surprise and thrill every girl you meet!

Like a miracle of light there comes a pulsing, glowing question - WILL YOU KISS ME IN THE DARK BABY?

There's no trick, no hidden batteries, no switches or foolish horseplay, but a thing of loveliness, as the question emerges gradually to life, touched by the wand of darkness.






A HOLLYWOOD RIOT WHEREVER YOU GO.

I believe I rented a video called The wand of Darkness when I didn't have a girlfriend at the time. Sad, sad, lonely days.

hilarious... the copywriter earned his paycheck that day! What year is this from? 40s, 50s?

Brian Hughes said...

40's, I think.

Grebo said...

Man, that copywriter deserves a nobel prize for that purple prose!

The scary thing is, I really, really want one of these things now.

I'm off to ebay to see what I can find.

already checked Grebo... no dice

Is a "Hollywood Riot" anything like the L.A. riots? I'll pass.

Brian Hughes said...

I think the working assumption is that "Hollywood anything" is more glamorous and exciting (and therefore BETTER) than its somewhere-else counterpart. Like how a "Hollywood Miracle Diet" is perceived to work better than a Cleveland, Ohio Miracle Diet.

Well, I did enjoy "Riot On Sunset Strip", because the Chocolate Watch Band were in it...

Rick said...

just watched an episode of the Beverly Hillbillies and Jethro mentions that he bought a tie for his graduation that glows in the dark with letters that say "Kiss me in the dark baby" !

Mego Thor said...

LOL, I saw the same episode! I was shocked, shocked!, to hear Jethro say that.

The great humorist S.J. Perelman once wrote a piece (actually, a one-act musical!) based on this ad. I forget the title, but it can be found in THE MOST OF S.J. PERELMAN.
