Friday FAIL

Advertising in days gone by was seriously sexist and very un-P.C. Take a look at these ads from over 50 years ago.

Ad executives would be paddled for creating ads like these today.

I think we still have a way to go but I'm glad we don't see ads like that nowadays. That last one is outrageous!

Oh there would be so many groups up in arms over that last one! And some of the others would have gotten creative directors fired! Thanks for sharing!

I'm glad we don't see ads like this any more but still I had to smile.

They are fails and advertisers are less sexist today, but unfortunately, it is rife elsewhere.

Being a fan of pinup art (and of course being a male) I am actually quite fond of those famous Ridgid pinup ads of the 50’s. They are way more tasteful compared to the even more overt ads of theirs from the 70’s.

That last one can’t be a real ad - ??

Women have come a long way from the days when these ads were in print. Now they get much less respect and more violence. They are now free to spread their legs for full frontal and post them on the web. That's real progress.

Roz said...

LoL Hermione, always love looking at old adverts. Definitely wouldn't get away with these now!


Hermione said...

I also doubt that the last one was a real ad. What was the product?

Alas, sexism is still in existence.
