Once again, I am updating my own post with another ad from the same online group.  The caption someone added on the vintage advertising group was: "Hey son!  Let's climb into our underwear and play trains!"

****, I've been doing it wrong, I'm usually fully clothed.  This weekend I'll try your method.

(1)  Does the cigarette train come with a smoke unit?

(2)  Beside the fact that they're in their undies, what does the kid have on top of his leg with a wire coming out of that he's staring at with a weird grin?  ....it's reminding me of the Addam's family ....is he about to set off the explosives?

It looks like the external wire that goes with the Lionel Generator car (the blue and white one).

But, yeah, a strange looking scene.

Well, it is an underwear ad after all. Nothing creepy about that.  No different than the bazillion underwear ads we see today in print, online, and tv.

Serenska - that Winston ad really took me back - the version of that ad kids in my neighborhood used to sing was  - "Winstons taste bad like the one I just had. No filter, no flavor, just cotton-pickin' paper." 

RSB:

Funny, we had a similar version of the song in my neighborhood: "Winston tastes bad like the one I just had.  No filter, no taste, just a bunch of paper waste."

In hindsight, it's a pretty well-crafted melody, seeing how it's stuck with us all these years....
