Curious 1953 ad

This ad today would probably be banned for being "politically incorrect" - it compares the qualities of the TV with the Atom bomb... I imagine that it might not have been popular with the large Japanese colony in Brazil:

Wow , and there it is , the first known use of something being called "the Bomb" as meaning it's great . And all this time I thought that expression was just 1990s ghetto speak . Thank You for sharing that Captain Video

Interesting, but hardly the peak in bad taste as far as nukes in advertising. I think that award has to go to Mosler Safe Co., who ran a series of ads touting their vault at the Teikoku Bank in Hiroshima, Japan, which kept depositor's money safe on August 6, 1945, while many of the depositors themselves were vaporized...

People were SERIOUSLY fascinated with the Atom Bomb back them...
