Well, guess what?
This advertisement has more than journalism and Japan going on in it for me!
As some of you know, I also write an aviation blog entitled: Pioneers of Aviation - because I like historical stuff about planes and such. So this ad kind of covers that.
As well, this ad features Japanese women... and while I tend to have a thing for Japanese women, the correct way to phrase it, is that I a huge thing (LOL) for women. Period. Not women having their period. But, women. Yes... women's butts. Whatever. Some of you know what I mean.
(By the way... have you noticed how many people use the short-form 'LOL', which means laughing out loud? When did the world become so happy? I think people are lying to themselves so they don't either drink themselves into oblivion or blow their brains out with social media. Okay, joke over.)
Now... I'm not sure what happened in the world since 1955 and 2013 (actually, being an astute history buff - I'm a buff kindda guy - with degrees in political science and journalism - I do know), but really... take a look at that advertisement.
Is it just me or is there not a looker in the bunch?
Would that ad make you want to fly JAL? Okay... maybe the one on top... but I would need to see her butt.
Now... back in the 1990s, I did fly JAL, and I must say the stewardesses (I did not see any stewards) looked a whole lot more hot than the trio photographed for the old ad.
It's not just me, is it?
Okay... is it me, or do the top two women in the advertisement have the exact same mouth? And I mean the exact same mouth.
Anyhow, JAL back in 1955 was proud to fly folks between the U.S. and Tokyo in its 'great' Douglas DC8B aeroplanes (airplanes) that are 'catered' by lovely Japanese chicks of the day and piloted by million-miler Americans... literally pilots who have accumulated 1-million miles of flying time.
|A photographer gets up close to a DC8 shortly before being blown away by the jet engines. I assume.|
The DC8 planes were purchased by JAL probably within the August - October of 1955. Brand, spanking new.
And we all know how some people love a spanking.
By the way... a million-miler is now a person who has accumulated 1-million frequent flyer points as a passenger.
