THE PULSATING RED NOSE TOTALLY GIVES IT AWAY
Santa's piloting a Colonial Viper in this Hecht's ad from October 25, 1978. And what an ad it is. It's got a great riff on the Santa reindeer roll call and some great toys from Battlestar Galactica, Star Wars, Micronauts and they even threw in a StarBird. I think it's the only ad I've seen for the Star Wars three packs. Also cool is how they call a spade a spade and describe the Micronauts as "dolls".
