FROM SEA TO SHINING SEA
America is a great country. Americas cities are full of houses.
Americas forests are full of trees. Americas rivers are full of
water. But it is not houses and trees and water that make
America great; it is curiositythe constant quest to find
answersthe endless, restless Why? Why? Why?.
Therefore, when I was told that Marlboro was a top seller
at colleges from USC to Yale, I was not content merely to
accept this gratifying fact, I had to find out why.
I hied myself to campuses in every sector of this mighty land.
First, I went to the Ivy Leaguedressed, of course, in an
appropriate costume: a skull-end-bones in one hand, a triangle
in the other, a mask-end-wig on my head, a hasty pudding in
my chops. Sir, I cried, seising an Ivy Leaguer by the lapels,
which is no mean task considering the narrowness of Ivy League
lapels, but, I, fortunately, happen to have little tiny hands; in
fact, I spent the last war working in a small arms plant where, I
am proud to say, I was awarded a Navy E for excellence and
won many friends Sir, I cried, seizing an Ivy Leaguer by the
lapels, how come Mariboro is your favorite filter cigarette?
Im glad you asked that question, Shorty, he replied.
Mariboro is my favorite filter cigarette because it is the filter
cigarette with the unfiltered taste.
Oh, thank you, sir!" I cried and ran posthaste to several
campuses in the Big Ten, wearing, of course, the appropriate
costume: a plaid Mackinaw, birling boots, a Kodiak bear and
Spying an apple-cheeked young coed, I tugged my forelock
and said, Excuse me, miss, but how come Marlboro, is your
favorite filter cigarette?
Tin glad you asked that question, Shorty, she replied.
Mariboro is my favorite filter cigarette because the flavor is
flavorful, the flip-top box flips and the soft-pack is soft.
Ob, thank you, apple-cheeked young coed, I cried and
bobbed a curtsey and sped as fast as my little fat legs would
carry me to several campuses in the Southwest, wearing, of
course, the appropriate costume: chaps, canteen, and several oil
leases. Spying a group of undergraduates singing Strawberry
Roan, I removed my hat and said, Excuse me, friends, but
why is Mariboro your favorite filter cigarette?
We are glad you asked that question, Shorty, they replied.
Marlboro is our favorite filter cigarette because we, native sons
and daughters of the wide open spaces, want a cigarette that is
frank and forthright and honest. We want, in short, Mariboro.
Oh, thank you, all, I cried and, donning a muu mqu, I set
safl for Hawaii, because in Hawaii, as in every state where Old
Glory flies, Mariboro is the leading seller in flip-top box. On
campus, off campus, in all fifty states, wherever people smoke for
pleasure in this great land of ours, you will find Mariboro.
