Vintage Video: Vintage 1970s - When you can't be with him, be in his mind, be a mindsticker,,,he wants you with a good shape..Shape with Tab, Tab can help you stay in his mind...oh,,,ok, if you say so, but I just don't buy it..this Vintage Diet Cola commercial is very odd.

This commercial always freaked me out! I don't remember it as a child and only stumbled upon this lovely 70s treasure about 5 years ago and kept watching it in disbelief. I mean, this is just weird and to think, this was very real.  Could you imagine that any woman would drink Tab just so her husband would magically think of them all day and then scamper on home to get down and busy?  

I guess the people that created this sexest vid must have know a few dudes that were stepping out on their wives and decided to capitalize on it!  You see, if you gained weight and your husband wasn't attracted to you any longer, it would be your fault because you didn't drink Tab!  Like the commercial says,,he wants you to have a good shape, don't you want a good shape???  

Check out the video below,,it isn't long and well worth the shock of how far we have come. AS women, we still need to do more, but so glad our minds aren't stuck in the 70s. Now, our shoes and clothing stuck in the 70s is such another topic and an expression of moving away from these rules and regulations that were set for women and men.
