Day 277: Totally-surreally-weirdly-surprising-vintage-ads

by Sara

“We all know that we’ve come a long way. As science, social consciousness and heath awareness develop and improve, so have the reflections of our culture that we see in our advertisements. In this age of skillful, slick, integrated marketing and advertising-as-content, a concept that is surreal in and of itself, we thought we’d take a look at the advertisements of yore, which had to make do with simple paper and ink — not that these boundaries made them any less hallucinatory than the fake Times Square hack.”
