Egyptian themes are rather prevalent in tobacco ads and packaging from the 1800s through the early twentieth century.  In more recent decades, the references are often secondary to the overall modernity of the ad, such as in this Doral cigarette ad from 1971.  The premise is that during the filming of “The Seven Pharaohs”, a singing pack of Doral cigarettes interrupts and steals the scene.

That’s right, I said singing.
