Count Dante - Deadliest Man Alive and 70's Kid.



I wonder if any kid in the 70's ever saw this ad for Count Dante's Black Dragon Fighting Society and ordered it. And while he waited for the booklet to arrive, he started getting cockier and cockier.

He'd wait in his yard for bullies and throw rocks at them then yell, "IN 4-6 WEEKS YOUR ASS IS MINE YOU JIVE TURKEY!"

Then he'd run into the safety of his house, fling himself on the bed and look at the Count Dante' ad again.

Then when the booklet arrived, he ripped it opened and was shocked that it was complete bullshit.... and he prepared to get his ass kicked. He was gonna safety pin the ad to his chest in a last ditch effort but then he looked at it again, felt really stupid and just threw it in the trash.

No. That little boy wasn't me. But if might have been this guy or this guy.

If you click on the ad you can behold it's glory even larger.

Oh my God I just realized that when you order you get a Black Dragon Fighting Society membership card for FREE!

I wonder if that kid could have just pulled the card out and SHOWED the bully the card.

Maybe that would have worked.

Nope. Not me. I'm a lover, not a fighter.

His best friend was known as "The Second Deadlist man Alive"

His grandfather "The Deadlist man Not Alive."

His cousin is definitely the deadliest man in the trailer park, or so I've heard from all the other park inhabitants.

At what point did ads with the cheese factor like that go away. Now, print advertising takes itself too damn seriously.

Dr Zibbs said...

Sornie - yeah it is sad isn't it?

Thanks for the love Dr Zibbs, but I have never met a man that scared me, for I am fast as a Cheetah when scared!

I never ordered a booklet. I always skipped straight to the getting my ass kicked in part, usually by popping my mouth off to some dude who was bigger, meaner, and older than me. When I was 11, I had a kid stalk me all summer just to try to kick my ass in after I called him a pussy for throwing rocks at someone (which should have tipped me off that he was friggin' nuts). It became the summer of terror.

The trick is to combine your skills learned in the Black Dragon Fighting Society with your X-ray glasses.

Fucking. Unstoppable.

Dr Zibbs said...

SkylersDad - good one.
