an old April 1st hoax ad (thanks Gary!) from the creative genius of Cris Shapan


https://www.facebook.com/groups/stiffspeed/permalink/1389980931148519/

The movie the ad mentions, It's a Great Feeling, was (according to Wikipedia) a "spoof of what goes on behind the scenes in Hollywood movie making."

Many of the other parts of the ad are cobbled together from genuine 1940s era International Harvester ads
