Equipping God's People to Create Missional Culture

I’d Rather Fight Than Switch

So my mom pulled out some old pictures of my brothers and I.  This picture was taken after my older brother had given me a black eye. I was probably between one and two years old. Back in that day, there was a cigarette comercial whose sologan was – “I’d rather fight than switch”.  You can see one of the commercials from the 1960’s below.

    LOL … I am old! As soon as I saw your post title, I remembered the ad campaign. Then I remembered another campaign that had all the old people grumpy at the time: “Winston tastes good like a cigarette should.” I endured many a grammatical lecture because of that silly ad campaign. The grammatically correct thing to say is, “Winston tastes good AS a cigarette should.” And ever since I’ve known the difference between “like” and “as,” all because of a cigarette ad. I was 8. I guess you take your grammar where you can get it 🙂

    Yeah, I have no memory of these commercials. But it is cool that YouTube gives us the chance to take a peek in the past. I think that yesterday was the first time I remember seeing this picture.

    What a cute black-eyed cigarette smoking kid! Looks like something out of my family albums.
