1975 - ASM #147 - Seriously, Evel Knievel, Towels? Fine

Am I the only one surprised that the two ads I've seen in comics so far hawking Evel Knievel merchandise sell 1) a set of action figure toys where Evel's face looks like he doesn't wanna be there, because he really needs to take a crap...

and 2) today's ad, which lets you recall the excitement of the greatest stuntman in American history with... towels?

The sad thing is the ad for the towels looks far more dynamic and exciting than the one for his toys.

Today's ad for Evel Knievel towels ran in Amazing Spider-Man #147, August 1975.
