I've posted a list from foxnews.com before. Now it's MY list of the worst vintage ads with commentary!

KGB spies drinking beer. Kids and cocaine. Kids and guns! Carpooling with Hitler. And more!

Ha! Once again, truly amazing. And some of them are truly disturbing. I think this says something about cultural context. And how difficult it is for something to be timeless. A good argument to keep your finger on the pulse of the community with whom you're communicating.

Shawn,

Thanks! All I did was search to find them. They do say a lot. There were ones that were actually too offensive to include: the blatantly racist ones. It's unbelieveable what was once accepted as "acceptable."

I liked your captions Yoni and I would say most were bizarre.

Thanks for the fun post, Yoni. It's a great way to start the day. I wonder how successful any of them were when they were published? They definitely don't stand the test of time which is the hallmark of a great ad. P.S. I didn't know O.J. had 3 legs!

LOL I think you are becoming obsessed with bad vintage ads. For your birthday, perhaps a giant jar of corrector fluid and a time machine.

David,

Thanks! after posting links here to the foxnews.com list, I thought I would make one of my own. Problem is FOX used so many of the good ones. It took a few hours of searching, but I think I found a feww doozies.

All the best,

Yoni
