VINTAGE ADS TO MAKE YOUR JAW DROP

Here are some blasts from the past. 
 Okay some things never change. The guy who brings the puppets to the party is always the most popular guest.
 This poor woman can't even stand up because her waist is so thin. She must have had a lot of toothaches.
 Suddenly everyone is complaining about toothaches.
 Imagine how clean the house would be if she had a "toothache".
 Now this is a gift that will come in handy. Especially when you read the following ads.
 I am starting to cry a little bit myself.
 Maybe if you are blowing weed in her face.
 Okay this one is still relevant except we can plunk them in front of the computer screen. It's Howdy Doody time!!!
 We need the easy open beer cans because we have had some really bad "toothaches" lately and we are needing to slow down that buzz a little.
 Hops and malt are the perfect nutrients for your baby and the bonus is how well they will sleep.
 Am I the only one who reads this as "your guy is a giant pain and you need to medicate yourself to put up with him"?
 Now this is where that gun you bought yourself for Christmas will come in handy. No worries though. You can claim you were high on toothache medication and Midol and are not responsible for your actions.

Ugh. I think I'm nauseous... and have a toothache:@)

Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Oh not me, I am off to eat some Total, and take some Midol, so I can clean the house for "my guy". That is if I don't take my Christmas present out to do a little sharp shooting.

LOL. and definitely ROTFLOL.

Sigh... All that shows now the ads are far more subtle.. I always get a kick out of the prices though. But back then fifteen cents was a lot harder to earn. (That is without the gun - grin). ATB!

We have come a long way, but the ads today are still promoting false values and ideals. At least shows used to have people who looked like "real" people and singers could look like themselves. I always wonder how Roy Orbison would fare today...he wasn't a looker, but boy, could he sing. Everyone has to have the total package, in fact, looks trump talent, in some cases. How shallow and how sad.

Oh, my tooth aches!

Diane said...

LOL, LOL...I am laughing so hard I almost fell off my chair! Those ads were hilarious as were your comments. Great post to start off the weekend. Diane

Blondie's Journal said...

Your comments are funnier than the ads! Oh, but I got a lot of great laughs! Thanks, Lori!

XO,
Jane

Vivienne @ the V Spot said...

I barked out a little laugh with every single comment you made on this. It's HILARIOUS!
Gonna share this on FB. :)

Kasia said...

Wow... Ive seen some crazy ads but these were too good! I laughed every time! XD Those poor women... They'd need all the help of toothaches and midol they could get... and some christmas gifts :) Thanks for sharing this! Made my weekend! LOL
Hugs,

Kat said...

I agree, the ads were funny, but your comments were hysterical. I do have one question though. If you were going to risk giving mom and baby beer, couldn't you pick something better than Blatz?? These are a scream. Kat

Sue said...

Hot Damn! I knew I should be popping "Pep"! How else can I possibly expect to get through a hard day of cooking and cleaning for my man.... It's a tough life and heaven knows that beer and Midol could certainly help us members of the weaker sex. But I really have to Pooh Pooh the notion that beer makes baby sleep better- I think giving the crying brat a quarter shot of whiskey in his bottle would work much better. And if it doesn't, well then, just shoot me!

Greta Koehl said...

I shoulda had some Blatz beer when my girls were going through the colicky stage. I don't like the taste of beer, but I would have put it in their bottles. Especially if it was easy-to-open beer.

Vicki said...

These are hilarious. I'm old enough to remember this kind of advertising. I still can't stand 99% of today's ads.

jojo said...

I feel like I need an intervention..;j

Dianne said...

Unbelievable!

Deb from WhatsInMyAttic said...

now, we are REALLY ROTFL! What a hoot...how times have changed. Yeah, I really took Midol for "my guy"...definitely some self-centered, ego-centric, domineering male ad exec approved that one! And buy her a vacuum as a gift?
Little story...I bought a Dyson and had a little problem with it, according to the lady that cleans my house. Husband was home so he called the 800 #; they kept saying, "And does your wife have a problem...etc. etc." After the third time, Hubs told them, "Look, my wife doesn't even know where the cleaning lady keeps the machine..." Which was a total exaggeration because I do know that it's kept upstairs (somewhere).

Jo Anne said...

So funny! How did they get away with it I wonder!

Peg said...

Those are so funny - hard to believe people actually thought these were 'good'!

I guess I will start washing the windows every day!
I got a new dishwasher with a birthday cake on top one year. I think he learned his lesson! :)

Maureen said...
