A "Live" 1953 commercial for Kix Cereal. This is taken directly from an episode of "Ding Dong School", which can also be downloaded on the internet archive. The host of the show, who to an extent had creative control, insisted that only products that were beneficial to children could be advertised on the program. This is a long commercial, but there were only two commercials during the entire 30-minute broadcast. See complete broadcast here: Ding Dong School

Aired 1957, here's three commercials for the ill-fated Edsel car (1958 model year?), which despite some innovative features ended up being a major commercial failure. The car is considered a sought-after classic today. This was back when a 60-minute show often had less than 10 minutes of commercials, but the commercials were often all for the same company!

An episode of "Your Hit Parade" from the 24th December 1955. This NBC series presented the cast performing covers of pop chart hits. This episode has excellent production values and one of the worst commercials of all time. Also one of the few episodes of this series with an actual guest star. Main Singers are Dorothy Collins, Snooky Lanson, Russell Arms, and Gisele MacKenzie.

Another 1954 commercial for "Lucky Strike Cigarettes". This one features several people of note. I wonder how many of the people featured in this advertisement died of cancer.

An episode of the proto-reality game show series "Strike it Rich". Widely considered to be one of the worst television series ever produced.

Another 1950s commercial for Winston cigarettes. Not sure of the exact year, though. "Winston Tastes Good - Like a Cigarette Should". Back when you could still smoke on airplanes.

An episode of the infamous rigged 1950s game show "The $64,000 Question". When the scandal broke that several very popular quiz shows were "fixed", the ratings of several non-rigged quiz shows (such as "You Bet Your Life" and others) declined as well. This episode is complete with commercials for Revlon Lipstick.

A brief PSA for "The United Way". The announcers voice sounds very familiar, I'm certain I've heard him do the voice-over of other things I've uploaded.

"Mama" was a popular and award-winning drama/comedy show in the 1950s, but somebody had to pay the bills. The show was usually sponsored by Maxwell House Coffee, and this commercial features the cast (and aired after the main story was finished). It is followed by a mention that the show would be taking a summer break, and then by a promo for "Pantomime Quiz".

1955 commercial for a product called "Wizard Wick", designed to remove unpleasant smells like tobacco, fish, onions and cabbage from someones house. This is a very low budget commercial as it aired during daytime (hence, also, why it makes such emphasis on the woman of the house). (note: as of 25 July 2014 the files have been changed...hopefully the picture quality will be better now)

A 1957 commercial for Vicks cough drops. When I uploaded this to YouTube, it was commented by two people that it features Art Fleming. Is that correct? (I admit I'm not overly familiar with Art Fleming).

A vintage television commercial (circa 1965) for a men's hair grooming product called "Brylcreem". This 1960s commercial appears to be intentionally silly.
