Camera Advertsements: Miranda Cameras - 1962

I can't believe this company went out of business with an ad campaign like that.

(Actually they went out 14 years later, so you can't blame her).

All kidding aside, this is a great ad. It does exactly what it's supposed to do: it stopped me cold in my tracks when I was leafing through the magazine; and I remembered (and still do) the product being advertised. There are plenty of great ads and commercials that I've liked, but I couldn't tell you what it was for, like that beer commercial with the cat-fighting girls from a couple years ago. Budweiser? Miller? Coors? A very attention getting commercial, but I have no idea who it was for.

If you want to see how Miranada ended, look at this ad.
