BAD Ads From the Past!

Okay , now I have always really liked Seven-Up. It was my favorite soft drink as a child (and we didn't get it very often in our house, it was a special occasion thing), and I still drink Diet 7-Up more often now than any other soft drink. But, really now, people - I think we all know THIS is not a good idea! Cute picture in this advertisement from 1955, - but not a good idea:
And please do not EVEN tell me that in this ad from 1948, the Cocker Spaniel is drinking out of a PAINT CAN. Oh - and Dad is smiling! That's not even cute, that's just wrong.
Bad advertising, vintage style. Sheesh.

Great ads... The advertising thought process was obviously on a different scale in those days.

These ads are hilarious, but only in the fact that they didn't realize how WRONG they were! What WERE they thinking?! Twyla
