More Classic Japanese CMs

I previously posted part one of this series, and finally I've gotten around to part 2 (which covers some of the 60s) in time to make a new year's theme work.

I'm setting the video up to skip the first couple CMs and go straight into the one where they deal with お年玉 (otoshidama, new year's gifts to children).

Highlights include: Old man expelling lots of smoke, tengu eating curry, a fridge (they were big deals back then), and hearthrobs in 平凡 (heibon, mediocre) magazine.
