SOME ADS THEY DON'T USE ANYMORE





If my husband bought me a coffee maker or a toaster for Christmas, he'd be toast!!  Sure, I'd like it if he bought them for me us but just because we'd like them, not for a special occasion.

Why do you suppose these ads went out of favor?
Could it be because they were misogynistic, racist, unhealthy, dangerous
or just plain stupid? 



































(Most ads from http://frank151.com/seriously-disturbing-vintage-advertisements)


Copy this link to see a 2005 commercial for Carl's Jr
that never should have been aired.
It should be the first one.

A cop pulled me over and said, "Papers."
I turned to him and said, "Scissors. I win!" and then drove away----fishducky
