1967 Sony video camera ad promotes sexually spying on women

Nope. Nothin' at all creepy about this vintage Sony "portable videocorder" ad, which ran in Scientific American in 1967. Shared in the Boing Boing Flickr pool by fdecomite. Oh, fine, the "peep" probably refers in the literal sense to birds, not "peeping Tom." But when was the time you saw a guy in a business suit in a tree get that frothed up over a bird's nest? Well played, Sony of 1967, well played.
