Heck Yeah, Old Technology!
Nothing says “space age technology” like two women in plexiglass dome helmets, wearing dresses with swoops on them, like you’d see advertising products on one of those flying flat TV screens in an episode of The Jetsons.  I don’t think there was intentional product placement but you can make out a lot of Birds-Eye frozen foods, bottles of Heinz ketchup and cocktail sauce, a couple Jello desserts, a lot of no-deposit no-return glass bottles of Pepsi, some Del Monte peaches, a jar of Hellman’s mayonnaise, and no less than 28 eggs (each tray holds 14 instead of a dozen?).

1966 Frigidaire ‘Gemini 19’ (named similar to some spacecraft of that time period; a name later used for Internet radios) refrigerator/freezer ad.

    Can’t help but think the models’ attire (right down the clear space helmets) was strongly influenced by Braniff...
