Don't Let Death Take Your Holiday – 1961

It's New Year's Eve – so longtime readers of this blog know what means! It's time for yet another grisly and gruesome "Don't Drink and Drive" ad.

This full-page ad – from the December 30, 1961 Lorain Journal – doesn't feature the Grim Reaper himself, but still packs an emotional punch.

As usual, half the fun is seeing how many of the ad's sponsors are still in business decades later. There's a few in there this time, including Lucas Plumbing and Fritz's Garage.

Anyway, have a safe and Happy New Year's Eve!
