The Flintstones Sell Cigarettes

Everybody knows Fred Flintstone loved bowling, the Water Buffalo Lodge, and his wife. But I bet you didn't know he loved smoking too. Specifically, Winston Cigarettes. (It probably would have been more amusing if they called them "Winstone" Cigarettes for this ad, but you know how ad agency-types don't EVER want their brand watered down... even if it kills people.)

Eventually, Barney gets in on the cancer-hocking too. (There are minor audio sync issues with this commercial, but not so bad you can't watch it.)

  1. I actually didn't know that he loves smoking. I watched every shows and movies of The Flinstones when I was a kid. I didn't notice Fred Flinstone smoking, not until now with that video.
