70s Spots: Johnson’s Baby Powder & Command Hair Spray (1970)

A date with Ronald requires an hour-long bath and ample lashings of Johnson’s Baby Powder.

“Keeps anybody’s baby smooth and fresh.”

Two commercials today from the spring of 1970. First, freshen up with Johnson’s Baby Powder from May of ’70. Both of these actors sound overdubbed which sort of deflates the natural vibe they were going for.

Second, the world’s most masculine commercial for Command men’s hair spray. You’ll find deep voices, race car drivers, airline pilots, and construction workers looking for a spray that “holds.” They probably could have dialed things back nine or ten notches. The spot aired in April 1970. Enjoy!
