A vintage Toronto television ad bonanza

The best part about vintage TV commercials is that they're irony-free - and thus all the more hilarious.

For your viewing pleasure, here's a round-up of long forgotten vintage Toronto TV ads.

Hat tips to both retrontario and RetroTy7 who I'm sure have put in hours upon hours of work to find these gems.
