Today's Vintage Ad

I remember this ad, and this series of ads. I admit as a kid I didn't understand why the man had a gun. Not sure I do even now.

I can understand selling Keds with basketball stars - still works today - but aardvarks??

Also interesting that Keds were manufactured by a rubber company, not a shoe company or a sports equipment company. The shoes probably were an outlet for otherwise unusable scraps from their tire business.
