Blast from the past.

Wow. Another gem from 1970. Wonder if the men’s group who thinks Volvo should avoid giving their account to Arnold ever saw this ad. (Click to enlarge). Since it’s hard to read the body copy, here’s what is says:

Though she was a tiger lady, our hero didn’t have to fire a shot to floor her. After one look at his Mr. Leggs slacks, she was ready to have him walk all over her. That noble styling sure soothes the savage heart! If you’d like your own doll-to-doll carpeting, hunt up a pair of these he-man Mr. Leggs slacks. Such as our new automatic wash wear blend of 65% “Dacron®” and 35% rayon–incomparably wrinkle-resistant. About $12.95 at plush-carpeted stores.

" plush-carpeted stores."

WTF does that mean? I guess nice stores have "plush" carpet? Must be one of those past references that doesn't make any sense anymore.

Plush used to be a huge feature back then. Now, not so much.
