It is not often I am speechless but that is exactly what I was when I saw some of these advertisements and products from days of yore. You would not get away with it by today’ standards.

In this PC world these ads will not be shown anymore. Usually I don’t like Political Correctness, but in this case I am willing to make an exception, Thank goodness for that.

Just warning you, there is a possibility you will not sleep again after seeing these.

The weird world of advertising-Christmas style.

3682

Let it never be said I don’t provide a public service with my blogs.

I know the Christmas season can be a time filled with anxiety and especially for those men who do not know yet what to buy for their wives or girlfriends(or both). That’s why I decided to help along.

With still a month to go Christmas you should have plenty of time to get inspired by these ads from days of yore.A word of warning though if you actually do follow up on these ads, this may well be your last Christmas.

What wive doesn’t want a Hoover for Christmas?

WWII Advertisements

3545639_orig

Just because there was a war going on didn’t mean that companies abolished their marketing needs. The advertising trade was still booming. Nothing beats and old fashioned dose of patriotism to get your products sold(or sometimes not sold).Lets face it advertising is really a commercial form of propaganda.

Below are some examples of advertisements from the WWII era.

86559.ngsversion.1464613203166.adapt.590.1

 

According to this May 1944 National Geographic advertisement, “some things”—presumably love and superior tire quality—”never change.” Nevertheless, this General Tire advertisement encourages readers not to buy the company’s tires during wartime for the sake of rationing rubber.

86560.ngsversion.1464613202057.adapt.590.1

In this September 1944 National Geographic advertisement, Minneapolis Honeywell Temperature Controls promises homeowners that in the postwar future, they’ll be able to purchase heating and cooling systems that seem straight out of science fiction
