Hostess Ad -"The Ice Age"


Mmm...it's a summer Saturday, and I'm in the mood for some Hostess Cupcakes! Who's hungry?

I certainly can't be the only one who would love to see ads like these again. They were goofy and utterly charming.

A lot of them were written by Bob Rozakis, and this looks like a Curt Swan-Vince Colletta combo to me. And since Hostess and/or DC had a rule that the star of a particular ad could not also appear in the comic itself, that means this ad ran could've run in any DC comic but Aquaman.

Which means, of course, that this version of Aquaman--the one happily shilling for Hostess--was a lot more widely read than the heroic version appearing in his own book.

I love these ads. :)

Things were so much simpler then...

Do you have the Hostess ad titled, "That Dirty Beach?"

(TELL me the writer didn't know what he was doing...!)
