Winston Lights

1979
In 1979 Winston Lights' advertising format returned to a frontal close up previously used in 1977. Executions for both Kings and 100's were headlined with, "Taste Winston Lights". Tag lines for Kingsize executions added, "Best taste. Low tar". Tag lines for 100's in women's magazines added, "Best taste, low tar for today's longer length". In the 4th Quarter 1979 another campaign was added to the Winston lineup. Copy above a male model leaning against a ship's railing said, "No compromise.
