This Strange Easy Bake Oven Comic Book Ad Artwork from 1973

The concept of strange comic book placement ads always fascinated me. Artwork created by what I assume were freelancers doing it for the cash and never having to worry about their name being attached to what was usually the silliest of scenarios that somehow connected to a product. But in my memory, I thought it was only something created for Hostess Fruit Pies.

This ad was for the Easy-Bake Oven in an issue I have of The Hair Bear Bunch comic book from 1973 and just makes no sense.

But there is something so fun about artwork that is so corny and stiff that makes it kitschy and cool. Plus, that color scheme is awesome I think!

Here are some panel close-ups.

Then I just try to think if I accidentally used one of those fake login pages you hear about that steal your info. Or was it an app installed?
