Great Classic Advertising, Vol. 2

More politically incorrect ads from a bygone era. The scary thing is, it hasn't been gone all that long.

A great list idea from Gem, who misses Siegfried & Roy.

    Holy crap man. Creepy. Creeeeepy.

  3. I remember that love's baby soft ad... at the time I thought it was cool. Ah, the 70s! (shudder) And I remember when that type of women-busting ads from the 60s were commonplace. Damn, I'm old.

  4. Oh.My.God.

    You're right, some of those are frighteningly recent. I actually supported the Love's child porn campaign by bathing in the product when I was 11 years old. Jesus.

  6. There's nothing like some coffee and a spanking to start the day right.

  7. Amy - so did my sister. I liked to tell her she smelled like a French whore. She did not appreciate that.

    Ginormous - you got that right.

  8. Gem - you're a part of my world... just like Jasmine and Aladdin.

    God.. too much Disney in my house!

  9. I remember most of these and it's only now I am shocked out of my mind! The babies guzzling high fructose corn syrup, misogyny and kiddie porn! That lady looks far too happy to be receiving a mixer as a present. At least the showering boys are having fun!

  10. That Puma ad... can't be real. Can it? What the hell?! I'm trying to figure out the message behind that ad, but I got nothing. Nothing that isn't filthy and disgusting, at least.

  11. Mike, who knows. I don't get it either. Might not even be real. But I wouldn't put it past them.

  12. When am I going to learn to NOT read this at work?

  13. The Puma ad's a hoax, unfortunately:

    The rest are pretty hilarious. I love the 7-Up and Coke ones!

  14. Part of me is glad the Puma ad is a hoax, and part of me is a little disappointed.

  15. Mike - I know which part is disappointed.

    Bronwen - thanks for the info. Good to know.

  16. I love the Coke one -
    "Scientific studies have shown that drinking coke makes your kid exponentially cooler, just like cigarettes! Start 'em early, folks!"
    Too bad they didn't add the part where feeding your baby beverages capable of dissolving metal will screw them right the fuck up.

    And the Love's one? Eeeeuuuughh.... *shudders*
    Breeding a whole new generation of pedophiles! :D

    And is the "she may look clean" girl actually representative of 1940's prostitutes? She looks like she should be in a Betty Crocker ad!

    ...And what exactly is going on the Postage Meter one?

  17. I'm almost positive the "Cola" ad is a fake...the Coke bottle in the lower corner has a really jagged clipping path around it.

    But how sad is it that I'm really not entirely sure that something that horrible is a fake?

    And oh my god between the Love's Baby Soft ad and the group showers...It's almost unbelievable that anyone managed to grow up in the seventies WITHOUT getting molested.

  18. I wonder if that Coke ad was before or after they took the cocaine out of the soda.

    That Love's Baby Soft ad isn't any worse than the clothes people put their little girls in these days that have some saying across their butt like "Princess"..."Fancy"..."Hot Stuff"...etc. Yeah that's just what I want, something that causes perverts to look at my young daughter's ass!!

  19. I was looking for the ad that urges ladies to use Lysol as a douche, but maybe you already ran that one on another post.......

  20. The Lysol douche http://s119.photobucket.com/albums/o131/mistyshadows2u/?action=view¤t=Lysol1928.jpg

  21. The spanking one is hot, and the Baby Soft one is uber-creepy. Weird.
