Banned Ads?

I came across this site of 25 Vintage Ads That Would Be Banned Today and I wanted to share with everyone. You'll have to go to the page to get the full experience but I will share the best ones with you here. I just can't bring myself to share the very most offensive, though, you HAVE to go see them.

Yeah, I'm thinking more like Valium.

I bet these people had tooth aches EVERYDAY!

I'm not really sure what to make of this. Are they saying the shoe will keep her at home naked or she belongs in the shoe? 

Seriously? I hope this is disgusting to everyone, not just us vegetarians!

Oh yeah, babies NEED 7-up! At least it's caffeine free...

I made this one larger so you could read the fine print about fitting in. Somehow I think this might be before the truth in advertising law.

I not only laughed right out but even snorted.

And last but certainly not least (because there are some crazies you've got to see)

Too funny! The soda regimen cracked me up!

Wow, these ads are crazy! It's hard to believe that cocaine was actually publicly advertised and that parents were actually encouraged to give their kids coke to drink. And that ad with the pig cracked me up (and yeah, grossed me out too). Thanks for the great post! I'm going to check out the rest of the ads now.
