The Best of Playboy's Advertising

The Best of Playboy's Advertising

With the news that Hugh Hefner has died, we delve into the archives to find the best of Playboy's advertising.

News broke today that 91-year-old Hugh Hefner, the founder of international adult magazine, Playboy, has died

While Hefner and his magazine were often divisive and controversial - low-grade smut or publishing barrier-breaker? - the publishing empire, and latterly spin off products using the Playboy brand, made Hefner a multi-millionaire and household name.  

Below, we take a look over some of the Playboy's best international commercials for a variety of its products, plus highlight a Hefner-starring spot for a beer brand.
