There are some things that kids should not emulate their fathers doing........ (1967)

How many of you remember this next ad?

You've heard the old adage, "like father, like son"? That's the theme of this spot, narrated by actor Lloyd Bridges (ex-Sea Hunt, The Loner). Little boys will copy things that their fathers do, but smoking shouldn't be one of them.

My late father was a smoker, and was what you'd call a recreational drinker, but would imbibe a wee bit too much some nights. That alone convinced me that his vices were not meant to be mine. Thanks, Dad.

Happy Father's Day.
