Here's a link to some pretty scary advertisements from the golden days of the fifties.

I especially like the woman turned into a rug on the floor for the handsome man.

I am at work so several pictures would not open up. (Work is stupid)


My Fav -- The man spanking his wife over the coffee. "Did you check that coffee? No? No, you didn't? For that little lady you are going to get a good ass whipping."


Most Disturbing - The young girl made up to look old and the advertisement telling you that she is sexy. Gross!!!

 The French pork ad must be seen to be believed, as is the Lysol one.

Enough is enough, Disney. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray.

As a man much wiser than me once said..."What the fuck?"

That's just some nasty material there.

Sincerely,

Especially the ad with the pig cutting himself. Totally gross.

Or would you rather look at some "future" public service announcements instead?

Never, in a million years, would I have associated Lysol with the cleansing of the hoo-ha...

It takes 52 pounds of pressure to rupture an eyeball... :blink:
