Offbeat Ads

Most Racist Ad Ever

I don’t know when this ad was put out, or where it was used… but it’s by far, THE most racist ad I’ve ever seen.

Hard to imagine a society like this, isn’t it?

Dress Shields? What’s a dress shield?

Amazing, selling antiperspirants to women, as pads tucked in their bras.

This company invented this back in the late 1800’s.

What’s even MORE amazing is they are STILL selling these things today, holy shit!

It’s true! Check out the disposable arm guards at

Can you imagine how that must feel, carrying around a wet sweaty ball of cotton under your armpit, all day long?

I don’t know about you… but I’m thinking there has to be some kind of sex fetish behind this – it’s just TOO odd, otherwise.

Speakers Wanted

Not ten minutes ago, I was reading an issue of Success magazine. And tucked away in the back in the classified is an ad that said something like, “I need 10 people who want to become professional speakers.”

It’s truly amazing sometimes, how… nothing changes for certain marketplaces.

Wrong, wrong, wrong.

The ad says, “If he does not go to the store immediately, cry a little…. He’ll go, he’ll go.”

Obviously, if they knew anything about men, the ad would read, “If he does not go to the store immediately, give him sex. He will do anything you want, immediately.”

“Funny” Business Opportunity Ad:

Interesting business opportunity ad. Not easy, by a long-shot, unless you can already draw.

But if you cant, it doesn’t matter.

Why? The answer is simple.

Because it’s an “easy home study course, personalized instruction, teaches you everything.”

Some things never change, right?

Fountain Pen tips

At one time, everyone wrote with a fountain pen.

Can you imagine keeping the books with a fountain pen, blotches of ink dripping all over?

Odd, huh? I write with fountain pens, actually and I love them.

Great line variation, feel really connected with your ideas and with your text.

What they did back then was… they had specialized tips for different purposes, like steno, bookkeeping, etc.

The bookkeeping pens were hard nibs that were fine point, to minimize leaks.

Lead Generation for Religion?

I couldn’t swear to this but I’d bet this ad was lead generation for some religion or cult.

This was probably a somewhat controversial ad when it was released. But no worries, because…

Next week: Metallica shares their thoughts on tampons.

How to kill Mosquitoes

God this looks awful. It looks like you’d be wiping something similar to pain thinner on your skin.

But sure, I guess that would definitely get rid of and kill, the mosquitoes (mosquitos?)… for sure.

I’ll buy it!

I have NO idea what this woman is selling, but wow is she sexy!

It’s really amazing how talented a good artist can be – making paintings this vivid, sure ┬áisn’t easy.
