Outrageous Vintage Adverts That Would Be Banned Today

How did they get away with it?

Advertising plays a major part of our lives and has been responsible for influencing our attitudes and minds since man first carved images into a stone tablet.

Today, although adverts can sometimes border on the offensive, it is nothing compared to pre-millennium advertising, where even into the 1990’s moral standards was just thrown out of the window.

Let’s take a look at some rather shocking examples. Please be aware because in here you will find a collection of rather discriminating ads. It’s amazing to think how brands ads could be so racist, sexist, full of misinformation and just damn-right offensive, all to get us to part with our money. Unfortunately, it’s not that surprising either that companies got away with this for so long!

  1. Product buyer Ms Gabriella? Well I Just hope you make sure to test the coffee for freshness! *wink* yes IJK. I’d hate to see what would happen to a company today with that type of advertising.
