Arnie's Secrets...?

If you grew up in the '60s, you'll remember ads like these... promising to make you the strongman in the crowd. Be the admiration of your friends as you flex your ripply pecs at every occasion...pose like the best of ' those muscles grow and bulge...and all for just $1 (post paid too)!
"The pal who before could handle you with ease will get a surprise of his life as you handle him easier than he ever did you." could certainly read some double entendres into these old muscle ads!
So just how do you perform strongman tricks without strength? You don't need super-power when you know these amazing secrets! Tear telephone books in half, break a plank with your bare hands, support a wooden beam containing five nubile gents with just your…er...what an odd picture! Looks like he’s pretending to be a park bench, just to "poke" some fun at the five guys all dressed the same!
Who the hell ever came up with the creative copy for these ads???!!!
