Found this today: a great collection of old commercials. Man, the 1960’s were swell, eh? And you wonder why women wanted equality…

Of course, that’s a huge improvement over coffee adverts in the 1950s.

Spousal abuse

That’s not all there is. There’s an ad for Armstrong vinyl asbestos flooring (1965 – and asbestos never seemed more hip!), a racist ad for Jello (1959), a Dick Tracy toy gun set some kid uses to scare a crook (Otis Campbell!) into falling to his death with (1961), and Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble extolling the virtues of Winston cigs (1962). You can see all the nostalgic goodness at Cracked.
