Legendary entertainer Bing Crosby probably needs no introduction. And while you may think of celebrity endorsements as a more recent trend in advertising, that’s clearly not the case, as you can see in these ads from the 40s, 50s & 60s featuring none other than Mr White Christmas himself.

Bing Crosby for Fleer’s gum, explaining “How to handle teen-agers” (1946)

Bing Crosby, starring in Paramount’s new hit film “Blue Skies” in Technicolor

by Bing Crosby (alias “Der Bingle”)

“Teensters are positively people! Try to remember, they have a lotta problems… mainly parents. When their jive talk gives you the heebie-jeebies, and their rootin’-tootin’ clothes (Look who’s talking!) make you despair for ‘civilization’… better bear up and shut up. They’ll grow up and get over it, even as you and I.

“Scratch most teen-agers and you’ll find a solid citizen. And when they sound off with ideas for improving the world we made… well, maybe us parents could learn sumpin if we’d stop snooting the kids and listen.”

Bing’s message is one of a series presented by Fleer’s to promote better understanding among families, friends and nations.

Teen-agers and parents both agree that Fleer’s Gum is mighty fine gum. Try it and you’ll see why there’s a trend to candy-coated… and why Fleer’s leads the trend. Extra flavor.
