Offensive Vintage Ads
Ah, the good old days! For my dad’s birthday a few years ago, I bought him a box of old Life Magazines and other vintage publications from a local collector. Recently, I went through some of them and found some crazy vintage ads that would be likely be banned today!
1. Show Her It’s a Man’s World
Because a woman on her knees serving her man is a man’s world.
2. Wholesome Soda
Get ’em hooked on sugar and soda at a young age.
3. No Shape For a Girl
Because nothing’s more comfy than a tight girdle.
4. Good in Cellophane
5. If Your Husband Ever Finds Out…
Because if his coffee isn’t fresh, domestic violence could be the result.
6. Gals are Useful After All
Who would’ve thought it?
7. Accidental discharge “impossible”
What could possibly go wrong?
9. Just like Dad!
I remember these.
10. That’s What Wives are For!
11. If Men hate the sight of you….gain weight
Because we all want to gain weight by eating lard, right?
12. Golly, Miss Maria
This one speaks for itself.
13. Women are gentle but they hit things
We just can’t help it!
14. Most Flavorful
Did they not see the Freudian slip here?
15. You mean a woman can open it?
16. It’s Toasted
Who can forget the Mad Men campaign? Here’s one way to lose weight.
17. Is it always illegal?
What do you all think? I’m sure there are crazier ones out there than these, but I think anyone who submitted these today would probably be fired.
