“Don’t You Want to Have a Good Shape?”

I don’t resort to just posting videos from YouTube very often, but I was made aware of this old TV commercial for Tab in a loosely-related story on NPR, and, well, it is too good/horrible not to call attention to.

Wasn’t this from what Mad Men would have us believe was a golden era of advertising? I mean, they’ve got the sexism down, but the concept, the copy-writing, the jingle-composition and performance, the acting, the cinematography…all of these are laughably bad, no?
