But I'll bet it did get some subscribers. Those college pennants used to be a really big thing. It is kind of an odd match up with a movie magazine, though.

I wonder what they meant by "Subscription blanks will be sent on request." You apparently didn't need one to subscribe since they precede it with "Send in your subscriptions now."

Yeah, I don't know what that means, either! I wondered about it myself.

Another Pepsi ad. I wonder how effective these were. Amusing, but odd because they give no information whatsoever about why a person should buy the product. :)

Here's a guy playing a home-made gahoon. The 'music' starts around 1:34 What do you think?

:lol: That's pretty funny. Thanks for finding it! Yeah, that's what I was thinking as he played it, the claim that it would be a big hit at parties. :lol:

Did you notice it was made by the Gahoon Product Co.? Wonder how long that outfit stayed in business. :D

I couldn't find much about it, other than blogs about the advertisement, so I'm guessing it was advertised in comic books for a rather short time. :lol:
