“BUY OUR TOILET PAPER OR YOU’LL NEED ASS SURGERY” Old ads didn’t fuck around.
Top 1000 Vintage Pictures
This was a standard date for me back in the late ’90s and early 2000’s. I had an annual pass and so did a lot of girls I dated. Annual pass holders were give three free passes every few months, so not having a
I remember that. The low-budget workaround, for us high school sophomores that summer, was to spritz lemon juice on your hair and then lie out in the sun. It didn’t work. We resolutely failed to look like breezy California blondes, and instead continued to
“Esso” is the phonetic version of “S O” for Standard Oil. In 1972, in the US, it was replaced by Exxon. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Esso
[Reminds me of when poor Space Ghost had to kill Banjo his Sea Monkey when it started attacking.](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=boc5JfvtB28) The best part is the last frame: “In Memory of Banjo. September 23rd, 11:00pm – 11:15pm”. My Sea Monkeys didn’t live much longer than that.
This one isn’t so bad I guess… at least the woman looks like an adult. You want to talk about creepy vintage ads? [Here’s that ad turned up to 11.](http://demilked.uuuploads.com/vintage-ads-that-would-be-banned-today/Vintage-Ads-Innocence.jpg)
I’m still amazed at the level of artwork they employed for these ads. A lost profession I guess.
Cigarette ads were so weird back when it wasn’t common knowledge how deadly they were.
If I wasn’t aware that board games with VHS tapes as part of the game were a bit of a fad in the early 90s, I’d have no idea what half this ad was trying to sell me.
It was a harsher time, that’s for sure. They were probably also trying to appeal to people who’d come from abusive families, and would be willing to essentially cut ties. It also would have served to dissuade “momma’s boys” from signing-up.
This is a slippery slope. A gateway drug. It started out innocently enough, a Fred here or a Dino there. By the end of the first year, I was tossing back three Betty’s and a Wilma just to feel alive. Friends don’t let friends
I love how they claim that because they were the pioneers it’s always gonna be superior. The ones before them must have thought the same thing.
That’s terribly misogynistic but dang if those aren’t some killer slacks.
The *Mario Bros.* that they were selling was a well known arcade video game. It was very common to use art to “show” the gameplay so that: 1. People wouldn’t see how poor the actual graphics were for the home console port. 2. The
Totally. I’ve always thought that [this commercial](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJHA75jYSIo) for Rice Crispies should be re-run. If I were a marketing guy I’d put it out as-is, but add a shot of bowl of cereal at the end, in black and white, that slowly fades into colour.
that is one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a long time. Especialy the post script down on the bottom for mothers
I could imagine that it was a group of ad-men back in the day. As if they really knew anything about the topic! 🙂 But you’re absolutely correct, there are women as equally ridiculous, lol!
This is gonna fuck up some future history student’s report.
My elementary school had Laserdisc systems in the mid-90’s. They were an analog storage medium, just like records. They had the same interactive features DVDs allowed, but image quality and storage space is poor compared to a DVD.
