Millions of people who have smoked Camels for years already know about Camel's cool, cool, mildness.
This ad insinuates that both doctors and famous opera sings smoke Camels, so they must be A-OK. Coloratura soprano Virginia MacWatters (1912-2005) and mezzo-soprano Gladys Swarthout (1900-1969) provide the testimonials for this Camel ad. They are additionally featured in a comic-style Camel ad also from 1949. Swarthout passed away from heart disease in 1969. Ten years prior, she had undergone open heart surgery after being diagnosed with a mitral heart valve condition in 1956.
