47 Unbelievably Offensive Vintage Ads That Will Make You Angry

And we thought we'd seen it all on Mad Men...


They say the 1950s were the good old days, but we don’t really see what all the fuss was about, tbh. 

Sure, the clothes were nice and Elvis was cool but casual sex was frowned upon, Thai food hadn’t made it to the UK yet and Netflix didn’t exist. 

Like, how was that living?

Also, society was incredibly politically incorrect. If these old timey adverts were anything to go by, everybody was super sexist. And really racist. And horribly homophobic. And into body shaming in a big way. 

You can shove your 50s up your wotsit, Daddio.
