Respect & Medicate Your Elders

All right, we promise this will be the last installment of our recent obsession with vintage advertising. Still, this one (our subtle favorite from a larger gallery) is worth a look both for its pharmaceutical shilling and its ends-based directive concerning the inconveniently elderly. The ad predates senior-targeted drugvertisements focused on walking by the seashore, dandling babies in laps, or performing creaky tai chi in a park somewhere. Grandpa acting up? Pump him full of Thorazine, and enjoy the drooling silence! We think Gramps is just understandably "agitated and belligerent" about that giant fat tie. Full ad after the jump.
