Classic Clip: John Player cigarettes cinema ad from the 1970s

With public smoking bans in place in many countries, cigarette adverts seem very much of another era – if not another world. But this cinema advert for John Player cigarettes from the 1970s is one you really should see.

Not so much for the ciggies, more for the design on display in the affluent couples’ home. It’s the way I’d like to love my life – albeit without the cigarettes.
