Super Spokesheroes

34

So it looks like Hostess is closing down their doors. Probably one of my fondest memories of Hostess is when they would run one-page stories featuring super heroes eating their pies. Seanbaby.com features a rundown of the history of those ads. However, super heroes were not exclusive to Hostess. They've long been pitching products to you.

Here's a run down of as many as I could find (only the first three videos are embedded to save on load time)...
