This 1960 commercial has been floating around the blogs as of late. Besides the fact that it is absolutely awesome it is very telling of the times.
I find it interesting that Legos have always been perfect for building Modernist architecture. I swear that there is a Mies tower in the last shot of the commercial. Also look at the awesome bomber that the boy makes. Perfect for going Dr.Strangelove on some Commies. And of course the girl builds a house, not as cool as the boys, because girls can't be architects. haha
Priceless, or should I say worth every $1.95-$25.00
