Misguided vintage ads

They don't make 'em like they used to.

The people of LOL Riot have dug up some vintage ads for us to chuckle at and though the authenticity of some is up for debate, it’s still worth a look. It’s perhaps too easy a target to pick on ad folk of years past for promoting some questionable products in ridiculous ways, since they didn’t have the benefit of hindsight. How could they know, for instance, that smoking wouldn’t be so adored today that all you’d need to do was “blow in her face” for her to “follow you anywhere?” or that people wouldn’t want to make bacon in their toaster. On second thought, why wouldn’t you want to make bacon in your toaster? Maybe they should try bringing that product back.
