Gay Bob

I found this advertisement on VintageAdBrowser.com. At first I thought it was a cleverly done Photoshop joke - but considering this site it's on I don't think so. There's no year specified, other than being under the 70s category. Anyone have any thoughts? Gay Bob reminds me of James Brolin, Barbara Streisand's husband.

I wish my closet looked as well-organized as his. It is not.

This is so hard to believe! However, here he is on Wikipedia, he's from 1977:

I remember this, I was in HS at the time. As I recall, he's anatomically correct.

Not only is the Gay Bob Doll real, it gets a mention in a Frank Zappa song, "Sy Borg," From "Joe's Garage, Acts 2 and 3."

Go to the three minute mark, and listen to the narration and following verse:
