No silly! She's demonstrating that the plastic cover is flexible! Instead of those bulky, expensive glass storm windows, you can stick plastic to a frame and use those!! I'm sure it kept out LOADS of cold air!!
Yeah, I'm sure PLASTIC storm windows were massively effective. NOT. LOL!But, hey, they only cost 19 1/2 cents a piece! Though I wonder what you did if you needed an odd number of windows? How do you pay 1/2 a cent?
What the . . . ?The ad copy doesn't even address the fact that this anonymous woman is trying to put her foot through the door. I want an explanation!
That's what happens when you have 'cocktail time' before you put the storm windows up.I bet the next picture was of her trying to use the window frame as a hula-hoop!
I think many people feel that way about storm doors in general.
oh my, install your own windows? bet they had no building regulations back then, gosh they'd have a cow now over that.
His wife and children shivered in the corner of the room."I don't know what you're complaining about," said Jack the 1950s husband, "you might be about to die of hypothermia because we have no insulation, but at least our windows are storm proof!"
You can still buy boxes of plastic that stick around your windows. In the "winterizing" section. Even at Walmart. YOU can buy it. Not me. But somebody must, huh?
Yeah, but it's just the right thing to have when your crazy neighbor heaves a bowling ball at your house--the window will just bounce it right back at him. No nails, no hooks, no screws--just an adhesive strip to keep hurricane force winds out? If that's so, I can't imagine how difficult it might be to get the window OUT again!
Barbara - Oh, I know! I was just having fun ;)Tori - I agree, they probably were not that effective...JD - I want to know too!Hairball - That sounds about right.Eric - I know I do. I have a really good storm window story but not...not yet. No one stepped through it, though.Amy - That's an excellent point. They'd want to charge you a lot for coming to put them in, now.Richard - I wonder if they put the window up after she did that -?Max - I think we actually used that once. It was not that great.Christine - Hey, that's true! So I guess we should keep them up all year!
This is one of those ads that are so confusing I guess you are supposed to think - I must need that! Because I so don't get it...I never understood that approach but Ive seen it a lot!lol
At least she's wearing sensible shoes.
