It’s simple: sell seeds, earn live canary

February 23, 2013

The American Seed Co. was well-known in its day for roping kids in (perhaps with a singing lariat) by incorporating celebrities and popular characters in their sales team pitch. The presence of Red Ryder’s and Gene Autry’s names in this one helps confirm the pattern. The promise in this ad of a live canary is a different wrinkle, though. Maybe you could team it with a mail order monkey and open your own petting zoo. Or it might have the gift of speech, and then you’ll have an insufferable Tweety on your hands. Pick your poison.

Also, I notice the electric baseball game doesn’t guarantee “you’ll never tire of playing” it. THERE IS A REASON FOR THIS.
