7. Ah, Women's Web
We still can't believe they actually went through with the idea. The ad shamelessly mentions that a mistress is around the corner if wives don't get rid of morning mouth.
The ad warns that not using their breath-mints is a big mistake because the next "attractive woman" he meets is going to take their place. The spider web shows that a woman is just waiting to catch your man.
8. That's Pretty Self-explanatory
When you need to buy a car, you need so much persuasion since it's such a big purchase. There are so many car advertisements across history. While most of these advertisements have been directed at both men and women, there's no denying that most of them were directed just at one target audience in the 1960s: women.
This ad latched onto the stereotype that a woman can't be a good driver and they need things to be simplified for them. For the ad of Mini automatic, they hired the beautiful Goldie Hawn.
9. Just Stock Up On Mints
What this poster is inferring is that infidelity is quite a common thing for a man to do and it could happen to any woman if they don't fix their bad breath. It is because if they don't do it, their lovely and funny husband will be kissing some other lady.
We are pretty sure that it wouldn't be right to insinuate something like this in today's world. After all, the ad is condoning cheating. One wonders how many women of that time left their husbands for bad breath.
10. Women Purposefully Gave Themselves Morning Mouth...Hmm
This ad from 1953 is all about morning mouth and how bad breath can upset men. After all, morning mouth scares a man more than anything else, right? And how can a woman make a man fall in love with her if she has bad breath in the morning? After all, it is so unnatural.
It is a shame that the creators of this ad didn't know that morning breath can't be controlled. And no one purposefully gives themselves morning breath. To make matters worse, this mask that is more inappropriate than anything else in the ad.
11. The Youngest Customers In The Business
We are certain that parents now would strongly disagree with this ad. In fact, parents will never feel good to let their children drink soda at such a young age.
The soda company at that time took pride in having the "youngest customers" and this 11-month-old child was one of them. According to the company, soda wasn't unhealthy for toddlers. The company also suggested adding their soda in milk to make it a wholesome combination.
12. It's Breakfast Time
First of all, this ad looks like something in which a woman is praying to her husband and offering food to him. This ad shows how advertising was back in the day. After seeing it, we are sure that there were no such limits or guidelines on an advertisement at that time.
Everything about the image is questionable, but let's pause and just look at the details for a second. How is she balancing so much while kneeling like that, and did her husband went to bed in a fully pressed shirt and tie? And even if he didn't, then it means he dressed up and then went to bed again. It is so messed up.
