Happy Promo New Year, Part 6: CBS’ 1970s Campaigns

What, exactly, was the CBS promo team smoking in the 1970s? They gave us the strange “CBS is Easy on the Eyes” in 1973 (were they even trying??):

And in 1978, we got “Turn Us On” (really, CBS?)

CBS’ later tags also included “We’ve Got the Touch” and “Lookin’ Good.” Why CBS, I do believe you’re trying to seduce me.
