Do you find relaxing very taxing? Are you tense? anxious? worried? Always tired but can't fall asleep? Are you afraid you're losing your grip? You may not know it, but that's good. Yes, good! Because this video can help you. Yes, it can! No matter who you are, you will feel better—and live better!—when you learn to relax. You can start right now by watching The Relaxed Wife (in two parts). Go ahead, watch!

As seen in the collection 11 Very Strange Videos From the Internet Archive.

I gotta get me some Atarax.

The hands giving him the newspaper reminded me of The Adams Family tho'. I wonder if that's a side effect of Atarax. Interesting how much subtler the promos for drugs were back then.

Okay, I'll shut up and go watch the vid.

Aaah the 50s: when men were men, women were in the kitchen, and we were all tranquillized. Swell.

The other 10 Very Strange Videos look... strange. I particularly like the sound of Bela Lugosi Meets A Brooklyn Gorilla.
