Phil Are Go: Get a lift with a Camel! – Olympikcy!

Get a lift with a Camel! – Olympikcy!
Just in time for the end of the Olympics, we’ve found something Olympicky! Camel cigarettes were the secret ingredient to Olympic gold in 1935! Observe!

We found this ad in a 1935 copy of Fortune magazine, the favored periodical of the Monopoly guy. The ad clearly proves that Olympic speed skater Jack Shea used Camels as part of his post-race recovery regimen. They restore his “pep”. See, cigarettes provide an “abundant supply of stamina and energy”.
