Here is our collection of the most offensive ads from times past.
Goodyear: When ‘There’s No Man Around’ commercial (1960)
Interesting marketing for the time. Corporate sexism or just a sign of the time? Possibly a sign of things to come?! Lilly Ledbetter sued Goodyear claiming she was paid less than men doing the same work.
Kool-Aid Kids In Japan Commercial (1960)
An extremely politically incorrect 1960 television commercial for Kool-Aid, featuring the Kool-Ad Kids visiting Japan (evidently in the 16th Century, too). Mel Blanc provides the voice of the Japanese Storyman.
