The Hostess with the Mostest Ads… Today we are going to take a look at vintage Hostess advertisements in comic books. There is something about these old advertisements, they were quaint and entertaining. That is the thing about them, the entertainment factor. That sticks with you longer than the empty calories that the content would have you consume. If more ads would take the whimsical approach, the message might just resonate with consumers like these old ads do with many of us. In a world that deals in stocks made of mindshare and dreamtime, this approach would be just as successful in an even shorter meme format.
