Homoerotic Cannon Towel Ad!

Back during WWII, Cannon towel use was apparently comparable to that in a porn film.
Check out this amazing ad about how the military boys in the South Pacific had been shipped
towels to wipe off with, and see if you wouldn't have minded a petite grab of their Cannons.

Now that you've finally cleaned off after yesterday's post showing a sexy, sinewy ad for
Cannon towels from WWII, let me get you all moist and towel-ready again.

Here are two more ads from the same series--one swishy and the other squirty.
Enjoy--then grab your Cannon.
