The below ad, from 1926, is real. This ad might have planted the seed for Kodak's "Death Campaign" of 1932. The Death Campaign was designed, photos taken, but never completed or published. It's sometimes alluded to as having actually been ran, but it wasn't and the remnants of it aren't in the Kodak archives. It's at the Hartman Center for Sales, Advertising, and Marketing History.

One ad was entitled 'Thanksgiving 1930 - The last time we were ever to be together' with a photo of a father, 3 children, and 2 grandparents. Another, has a little girl walking by the ocean with the caption 'It was the last picture we got of her'. WHO THE HELL THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA?!?! It's obvious why it never ran; but how did it get so far along? Something we'll never know.

Narrator: "Now her conscience speaks up."

"The bathrobes - not soft enough."

"But I -"

"The whole wash could be whiter too."

"But I wash so carefully!"

"It's not enough.  You must use Lenor."

Narrator: Exactly.  Lenor belongs in last rinse cycle.

"WHIIIIITE!!!  Like never before."

Children giggle madly.

"Now march!  Off to bed."

Narrator: Now she has a good conscience.

"Everyone loves you so."

TATTLE TALE GRAY!  and weirdly meta - the ad mentions (and shows) and ad for itself and the product IN the ad for the product.

"Your answer to that is as good as ours, but all of us know preparedness before possible disaster from modern air borne weapons is of vital concern to every one of us."

This seems like it would make a great Story.

How would it go?
