    Yes I can see them now. Great adverts, although the tobacco ones could have almost been from the back page of a 1980s women's magazine or somewhere like that. I do remember them appearing on billboards.
    I am a man (just in case anyone asks).

    I remember the Observer magazine used to have a lot of cigarette adverts in the 1980s.

    One of the last campaigns by Marlboro on billboards had views of "Marlboro Man Country" mostly shots of small town America.

    The Marlboro one could be seen everywhere, even in early Rec Room scenes in PCBH.

    some of them did appear in mags, but I recall seeing them on the streets too.
