Now I can't vouch for every single picture shown here with 100% assurance of their authenticity, none the less, these ads provide some perspective on what was considered politically correct over the last few decades. Very intriguing in comparison to what we consider politically correct today.

Even more intriguing, pondering what we'll think about the ads of today 50 years from now. Enjoy!

WTF @ this next one :|

The next two are my absolute favorites lol....

Well there you have it....hope you enjoyed this little trek down Marketing's Memory Lane

S&F for you. None of those ads would be permitted on tv today, and print is dead. Could you imagine the "spanking" as a pop-up ad?

Way cool post
My how things have changed indeed. Neat illustrations, however did you find them all? Hopefully in the future we will not have as many issues and "political correctness" will be funny. If we could just follow The Golden Rule it is automatically politically correct.

Thanks for sharing! Love the Thorazine and beer ones in particular.

On a serious note...this also shows how the media can be used to persuade us of the veracity of just about anything.
