Just as with the
Distributors ad appearing on the same page of the September
1949 issue of Air Trails magazine, you can see how marketing people
knew how to get the attention of men and boys. Victor Aerosearch ("aerosearch"
possibly being an allusion to "aeronautical research"?), maker
of the very popular (at the time) AeroGloss hot fuel-proof dope, employed the
same eye-catching technique. Of course both companies leveraged the dual meaning
of the word "model" to their advantage. Some people like to say you only need to
use an attractive model to get people to notice your product if the product is
not attractive enough on its own to garner interest. Others say the girl serves
two purposes - to get the attention of men in the business and to suggest that
if you use this particular product, you will naturally draw the attention of
girls who look like the one in the ad. Both arguments have merit, but I'm
guessing the most prevalent one is the latter rather than the former.
