Retro ads of highly dubious origins

Posted in Is it Nice..? by Ade Chong on April 20, 2010

Was doing some research on retro ads today and found some pretty wtf gems (that may or may not be real)!

(I like that they put children on the ad too.)

Schlite“Don’t worry darling, you didn’t burn the beer!”

Van Camp’s creepy Pork & Beans. (For satanic children only)

More satanic children

    Great vintage ads, especially for Pitney Bowes, I mean at first it doesn’t hit you but for a while as you stare at it, it slowly starts to penetrate you and you giggle with laughs. Well for now I can only giggle since am at work, but I would have wished to burst out laughing and hit the floor as I scrolled down these ads.
