Silly Stuff – This Was GOOD Advertising???

A little while back, my aunt repined this on Pinterest.  She is not on there often so when she pins something I know it’s worth looking at.  When I expanded the pin I saw that I was not wrong – this was definitely worth checking out.  It made my jaw drop!  I know I’ve shared some of these with you before but I think they are worth looking (and shaking your head) at again.

I just can’t believe this was once considered good advertising!  LOL


  1. I’m just speechless.

  2. WOW!! That’s why I just love it when people said things were better in the fifties….Really???
    Great post!

  3. Wow. You begin to understand more about all that pent up anger in the women’s movement of the later sixties and seventies. What a sobering blast from the past.

    Makes me wonder what future generations will think about our ads.

  4. Absolutely appalled! I can’t stop thinking WTF??????????

  5. They are all horrid but the pedophilia one is the worst

  6. OMG!

  7. ROFL. I know the ads are bad, but I really couldn’t help snickering at a few. It reminds me of a dating book from the 1950s that my mom handed down to me where one of the key bits of advice was something that boiled down to “Don’t talk about yourself. You might bore him. Ask about him.” LOL.

  8. Those are so bad! I can’t even figure out what they are trying to sell in the first picture. Enough horrible male thoughts to make a girl stay single for the rest of her life. Who wants to be a doormat?

  9. First ad is for knitting patterns, I believe.
