70s Spots: Noxzema ‘Cream Your Face’ (1972)

‘Boop!’

“Cream me!”

Happy President’s Day! A pair of Noxzema “Cream your Face!” commercials are available for you today. The spots aired in early January of 1972 and were very likely produced in ’71. I’m sure there’s no sexual innuendo involved in these ads at all.
