The Down Side of Dynamic Tension...

Maybe "Mac" should have kept working on his physique until his buttocks came in. Also, is it just me, or does his reflection look like he has his trunks pulled down a little low in front? Like he's doing a Boogie Nights reenactment.

Also, as a sales pitch, "LATER" is a little vague.


  1. Hahahahaha!!!!


    You gotta love these old Atlas ads for their blatant illogic. As you say, the time lapse from when Mac kicks the chair and "risks a dime" to send for the course, to the final muscular figure staring at himself in the mirror, had to be at least several months of 'dynamic-tensioning', yet when Mac returns to the beach, why, there's his old girlfriend (who I'll nick-name "Bitch") and of course, the same musclebound 'nuisance', just waiting to get smashed in the jaw. Immediately after pulverizing the bully's head with his new muscles, "Bitch" comes sauntering up to Mac in feigned arousal. Unfortunately for her, Mac would much rather go home and stare at himself in the mirror now than endure more of her shallow, double-dealing bitchery. And who can blame him? Just look at him!
