White Diamonds

So I caught the annual airing of this commercial today. How old is this thing? I feel like I've been seeing this ad since I was 3. And the lighting? My goodness, I know its been a few years since National Velvet, but Ms. Taylor couldn't have looked that bad when it was shot. I'm going to hedge a bet that this will still be airing 60 years from now. Anyone take me up on it?

I saw it recently as well. My mother used to wear that perfume (which stinks, by the way). I call it old lady perfume.
They certainly smeared a lot of Vaseline on the camera lens.

I believe this ad lead to the great Vaseline shortage of the late 80's, early 90's.
