Here is an old commercial of Winston Cigarettes with The Flintstones on YouTube.

I may not be a smoker, but this shows what was allowed for advertising on television at one time.

    HA HA!

    Woah, that's awesome. Its amazing how much our society has changed. It was funny to hear Fred just go from talking regular with Barney into a full-out sales pitch in a split second.

      I know. Even though I wasn't around in the 70s, but I still think this commercial is priceless, even if tobacco is bad.

        Agreed, I never smoked (and I don't intend to), nor has anyone in my family since the '60s, but it is still hilarious. I love it.

          Hilarious! It's before my time but I love it. Isn't there an Andy Griffith cigarette commercial too?

            I don't think so, but I know they had a commercial for some cereal.

                  He's right. Do a search for just "The Flintstones" on Youtube, and it will be the majority of the results. I know I've seen at least one different quality recording than most of them look, so it's not like they're all the same one, either.

                      I think that commercial should stil be on tv, along with that cammel.

                          I saw this commercial when I was bored on the net. I can see how kids smoking was a problem back then.
