Looking Back: More Inappropriate Ads from the Past

_____________________________

_____________________________


Ad for Mr Leggs, 1960
_____________________________


Ad by the Rice Council of America, 1967
_____________________________


Pear’s Soap apparently can turn black skin white – racist ad for Pear’s Soap, c 1890
_____________________________


“Want the thrill of imposing your will on someone? Or making someone do exactly what you order?” Especially a woman in a sexy outfit in the lounge room of your home? Get this book, fulfil your fantasies. 1950’s ad from the backs of comic books.

For a version less subtle . . . 


The couch in the back makes the message even more obvious.

1970’s ad for Jade East aftershave – “If she doesn’t give it to you get it yourself.”

And again . . .

_____________________________


“Ring Around Rosie. Or Carol. Or Eleanor, etc. Fun. But you can only play if you wear Broomsticks slacks.” 

Creepy rape-style ad for men’s slacks, 1960’s.

A serial offender for sexist, misogynist advertising:



_____________________________


“Now the new mistress of the home can go right ahead with some of those girlhood dreams - planning lovely meals for her man . . .” Ad, 1950’s

In the same vein:

_____________________________


World War 2 ad
_____________________________


Wrong on so many levels that there is no need to list them. From 1952.
____________________________

What is it about women and mowers???...






_____________________________


1950’s ad, not sure what the lad is holding behind his back.

It’s actually an ad for cellophane . . .


But this one isn't . . .
