Weird Vintage Ads (Outrageous!)

Link - by Avi Abrams

You are a bigoted, chauvinist pig!.. oh wait, this ad is from 1950

Disclaimer: Please note that the views and opinions expressed in these vintage advertisements do not represent those of Dark Roasted Blend, our editors and writers. We have nothing to do with it. We can only stare at it in utter stupefaction.

The ad above is "tasteless", indeed... Maybe people were coming out of depression and they needed to look healthier.

Weird lifestyle choices

Board the money... or a phone. The choice is yours.

Go Gay! and never look back (just don't call your company something like GayStyle, and put it on your business cards):

"So, what do you do when you come home from work?" - "I expand my lungs. It's lot of fun and satisfaction!" -

Doctors are out to lunch:

This must be fake:

A couple of weirdly similar racist ads:

Look at my ads! No - look at my legs!

The secret to having great ideas:

Hold on, it's getting worse

The kids on the left don't stand a chance:

Beer helps nursing babies? -

Well, if not beer, then -

Shoot'em up! -

Mysterious Gadgets

We had a few "Mystery Vintage Gadgets" articles - see here, for example.

Would you buy Coca-Cola more, if you it be sold to you from this vehicle? -

Pure cocaine drops are better:

I want to be loved by the mothers! -
