Cola-Is-The-Cure

Cola Is The Cure

Can you even believe your eyes? This advertisement states: “Babies who start drinking soda during that early formative period have a much higher chance of gaining acceptance and “fitting in” during those awkward pre-teen and teen years”. The advertisement even tries to persuade people that soda promotes an active lifestyle, boosts personality and gives the body essential sugars. Firstly, no sugars are “essential”! And secondly, have you ever read a bigger load of garbage in your life? Cringe-worthy…

Van Heusen

   via dailymail.co.uk

Man’s World

Van Heusen, you ought to be ashamed of yourselves! Advertisements such as this one were common many years ago, when it was widely considered that women were the weaker sex. The number one job of any wife was to please her husband, and to be at his beck and call. Perhaps it’s time this advertisement got ripped up into a thousand tiny pieces and placed in a bin, because this is one message that no longer has a place in 21st century society.

Palmolive Shocking Vintage Ads

Is She Pretty?

This vintage advertisement reinforces a seemingly ancient stereotype; it was important for a woman to look pretty and beautiful, but brains or intelligence were considered a hindrance, or not important. The times have certainly changed, and thankfully, Palmolive are no longer creating advertisements such as this one. Society may have a long way to go, but at least we can look back every now and then and be thankful that we have moved forward in many ways.
