A few weeks ago, I was looking through this post on Retro Comedy, The 15 Creepiest Vintage Ads of All Time and found quite a few lovely sexist vintage. Fun!

Let's take a look, shall we, featuring commentary from my sisters.

ad featuring an animal rug with a woman's head
Middle sis: "HELLLL no -- absolutely not. I don't understand, is that necessary? What's love got to do with it?" Youngest sis: "OH!! what the heck?!"

ad for Lane Bryant's book for chubby fashion
Middle sis: "but she's not chubby... she just has a big-ass skirt on!" Youngest sis: "I'm not into that nonsense!"

ad for coffee, featuring man spanking wife
Middle sis & youngest sis say in unison: "WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?!" Middle sis adds: "NAAAAAH SON NAH SON"

ad for a postage meter that says
Middle sis: *incomprehensible slurred words* "what the hell -- I don't get it!" Youngest sis: "what does that have to do with anything?!"

ad for a product called baby soft with a young girl in a sexy pose
Middle sis: "WHAT?! CHILD PORN!" Youngest sis: "they still make ads like these..."
