Ad It Up: New Accordions!

I couldn’t help but giggle when I saw this ad for accordions in 1962’s Fantastic Four #2. I’ve seen some strange ads in comics, but this one seems like it might have been pretty misguided. Were kids in 1962 really thinking “Hey, these adventures filled with superheroes and monsters sure are swell, but what I could really go for is some polka”? Probably not, even at “up to half off” and with a “5-day free trial.”
