Deep Thoughts: Looking Back on a Vintage Cougar Brochure

January 31st, 2011 by Stu

Somehow I feel dirty while thumbing through this brochure for the 1970 Mercury Cougar. Like I had been to an all day running of Ron Jeremy’s greatest hits or something. The ad agency that designed these books must have used the same cast, and definitely a few of the same props. For those of you who may have missed this one, it also says “Ready for Action” on the front cover. Also, if you happen to forget what animal the now defunct Mercury pays homage to, there are several shots of a real Cougar there to remind you. I like the big cat in the image below, almost as if the seductive-looking blonde woman is holding back the vehicle’s sheer power with that chain.

Anyone in the mood to watch Thundercats?
