"There's a bang in every bottle!"

Why yes, they *did* in fact use a "hillbilly" campaign to advertise Mountain Dew way back when. Tonight's Mad Men wasn't making that up.

And Barbetta is a real New York restaurant. Still around, even. You're welcome.

    Note the sexual objectification of the woman in the ad...Typical of the far left party of hate.

    I'm still not sure exactly what they were advertising here...

    Was "Mountain Dew" code for "moonshine"?
