Looking through some old Justice League of America issues the other day and came across this ad for Motorific action highway sets:
There’s a couple of things wrong with this ad, not least the first claim from Fred or Larry:
Seriously? “All new cars” have to go through the following?
Who’s driving their new car through what appears to be a brick wall?
At least the above are more run of the mill road tests.
And while it’s not exactly Grand Theft Auto, the introduction of a Le Mans timer does add a little frisson to the car track, but the thing that got me the most was this outrageous claim:
An “automatic service centre adds excitement“?! How is an automatic service centre exciting when compared with driving through a busy intersection, racing against the Le Mans timer or even crashing through a brick wall? What were you telling your children in the 60s, America?
