25 old advertisements that today would be banned
You can deny it, but do not change the fact that we live in a world created by marketers. Advertising - is a powerful force shaping attitudes and behavior since the beginning of the 20th century, when it came on the radio and later on television in the late forties.
Big power means greater responsibility, but you should try to tell this to anyone working in the advertising industry of the last century. Even today, advertising is far from complete and universal compliance with high moral standards, but after looking back to some of the racist and sexist vintage posters, modern advertising seems quite benevolent.
In addition to discrimination, the old advertising was often full of lies. Interesting fact - the first American advertising, which used sexuality as a sales instrument has been created woman and advertised soap.
Whether we like it or not, it's part of history, standing to look at it all.
1. Why did your mother do not wash your soap "Fairy?"
2. The harder working wife, the cuter she looks!
3. Men ask: "She is beautiful?", Instead of "She's smart?"
4. Use "Hlorinol" and be like a white nigger!
5. Cocaine toothache drops against
6. Keep it where it is supposed to be
7. Cochon Prodigue
8. Show her that it is a man's world
9. That's what a wife!
11. Start drinking cola before!
This is where I even translate text from a poster about a Coke, so it is "perfect":
"How is it - too early? Never too early. Laboratory tests in the past few years have shown that babies who start drinking soda during their early formation, have a much higher chance of getting recognition and "join the team" during these unpleasant teenage years. Do yourself a favor. Make your child a favor. Turn them on a strict diet soda and other soft drinks right now to have been guaranteed a happy life. "
