Classic/Creative Candy Advertising

There's something very creepy about many vintage candy (and even other food) advertisements   It occurs only when there's someone in the advertisement doing something that they're supposedly doing as part of their regular day.  It's as if you can see the art director telling this man to just be relax and enjoy his breakfast cocoa.  Then he tells him to look at the camera, smile, and pretend you want to kill the person looking at this advertisement.  I've come across many advertisements that seem to have this same flaw, I'm not sure why companies thought it was appealing, but I think it's just terrifying.

I found this ad here.
