If you remember correctly, the Walkush children like their PEZ as evidenced here, here, and here. So, when I stumbled upon this vintage PEZ Easter ad, I just knew it was too good not to share:
Methinks this ad is creeptacular for the following reasons:
- The Easter Bunny seems to have only one leg if you look very closely. Sure we can assume the other leg is behind the giant egg, but the leg that's shown just keeps going and going and going - weirdness.
- The PEZ dispenser that he's holding looks like an actual rabbit!
- AND Easter Bunny looks more like he's trying to eat the poor live bunny PEZ dispenser than the PEZ he's dispensing. (And even has a twinkle in his eye about it - BOO!) :-(
However, the one redeeming quality about this ad is that apparently, you could still get this creeptacular PEZ dispenser with 2 PEZ paks (that's how they always spelled it - AAARRRRGGGHHHH!!!!) for a mere 25 cents. What value! (Sounds like they were liquidating some bad inventory if you ask me.)
