Crazy Vintage Advertising Campaigns

Some of these are hilarious... some just sad. Advertising has always been a window into our culture [as Don Draper certainly said at some point].

Babies and cellophane; seems like a very bad idea.

Darling, did you just blow smoke in my face?

From the Academy of Mystic Arts. I'm worried about the cat.

Donuts fortified with Vitamins! What's not to like?

They probably should have asked around a bit before selecting their product name.

Could this possibly be any more misogynistic?

Really; this was a thing?

And then right after the beer give the kid some cellophane to play with.

The "he-man toothpaste". Ha!

I kinda want one of these!
