The {weird} Ways of Old

Standard
You know, I enjoy being involved in the branding side of a company – it has provided much insight as to demographics and target markets, age/gender/race appropriate approaches, etc. I am also reminded daily just how important ‘taglines’, ‘catch phrases’ and images can be to any campaign… so it makes you wonder just what these people were thinking and how different things and life must have been once-upon-a-time! Hope you enjoy the ads as much as I did 🙂 Even though some of them had me gasping for air from both utter shock as well as laughter!

... and if it were a machine, folks would be too damn petrified to use it!

Whats this? I hope it's not what it looks like...

The 'one-in-five' must be a real savage?

I figure there's a reason this coffee never took off - because all the men were poisoned by their wives.

What? No meat cleavers, chainsaws or woodchip machines? Aaaw.

Yes, we encourage a person to stay well hyrated during long car trips

oh I see... the connection... between cosmetics and a lama

Bwaa ha ha ha... if I ever recieved a 'meat thermometer', I can assure you it WOULD NOT be going into a roast...

Is that even a question?

This just in... I would never be that desperate to 'look cute'
