Source: 21 Vintage Ads That Would Be Totally Illegal Now
If you’ve ever seen Mad Men, then you know that the advertising business and the fine gentlemen who ran it were really sensitive to the needs and feelings of women. They would never use sexism and your own basic fears about yourself to try and get you to buy something.
So yeah, that was a good laugh!
Snap back to reality and we’ve got some really nutso vintage ads that wouldn’t be allowed in decent conversation these days.
1. You know what’s an asset? Not being sexist.
2. I don’t want to know what this man does out of a suit.
