Three Ads Too Good Not to Share #3
Posted By Pam@GoRetro On Wednesday, July 21, 2010
I love advertising copy that doesn't beat around the bush! Did I just say that? Pun intended! And the best thing about this copy - it rhymes! I believe this came from a 70s music magazine....because nothing personifies the decade like a creepy crawly STD.
And speaking of itchy and scratchy, here's a woman who's not just suffering from the seven year itch, but the seven and a HALF year itch. Zoinks. Poor thing has also probably been dateless for just as long....or maybe it was a date that gave it to her, in which case she could benefit from the product in the first ad...
This third ad comes courtesy of a hilarious blog called Vintage Child Abuse. It's just so hard to believe in today's day and age that an ad could get away with being this racist and outrageous...plus it appears the mother is abandoning her baby due to forgetfulness? Neither of which is relevant to the product it's pushing, Ivory soap.
