An astonishing bit of culture

My husband found this video of a 1954 Chevrolet sales conference on the Internet Archive. It’s an audacious song-and-dance (no really!) number about selling cars. I particularly like the bit (at 5:57) with women popping up out of a U.S. map and singing about regional stereotypes!! (but what’s that about the Great Lakes and pickles?) Thank god the sixties happened. I can’t imagine living in a world where this sort of thing was cool.
