Creepiest vintage kid ad? Deep South Peanut Pie

Where to start with this old Karo Corn Syrup ad touting "Deep South Peanut Pie?" Between the creepy, naked (!) kid with the bowler hat over his (?) privates (!), the ornate type used for "Deep South Peanut Pie" (and the attendant innuendo!) and the glistening image of the pie itself, it is a kind of perfect marvel of a bygone era of radically different aesthetics. I mean, this once was used to sell a product!
