I've literally had this jingle playing in my head for fifty years... and i don't mind a bit! So two days I go, i woke up and my first conscious thought was to see if it was on YouTube.

In the course of my googling, I learned that the Swinger was Poloroid's first affordable camera, that Ali McGraw, future star of Love Story and future Mrs. Steve McQueen, was in this ad, and that Edward Land, the visionary behind Poloroid, was a hero and mentor to Steve Jobs.

The ad itself is a classic. It touches all the bases. It tells you how to use the camera, how much it costs, shows a lot of thigh and ass for 1965, manages to find time for a nice instrumental break, and when it's over, if you can't remember the name of the product, you may have Alzheimers.

On the other hand, if I ever get Alzheimer's, this commercial is an excellent candidate for the last thing left in my head.

Not a typo. That's a real misspelling.
