Flintstones Commercial

My jaw dropped when I saw this!



Like the View-Master, the Flintstones were not originally meant for children. It was a prime time television show, loosely based on a Honeymooners-type concept and aimed at an adult audience. Also, it was not uncommon in the 50's and 60's for TV stars to flaunt the show sponsor's products...

A commercial like this would never fly today!

Woah! This seems more to come from another era, it seems to be from another planet!
