Here are a couple of ads for the caustic counterculture satire WILD IN THE STREETS (1968), both from July, 1968. The Super 50 paired it logically with its trippy AIP peer PSYCH-OUT (1968), while Proctor's teamed it with THE COBRA, AIP's release of the Italian/Spanish spy thriller Il Cobra (1967); no official video release known, but it is available on the gray market.
