Ten most controversial vintage ads that will make your eyes pop out!
Advertisement, as we all know, is all about communication in which the message should be crisp and clear of its purpose. The advertising world has come a long way. Can you imagine ads on racial discrimination, chauvinism (particularly male chauvinism), or something as grave as mocking religion? Of course not! To much of our surprise or disappointment, whatever you may choose there was a time where all of it was prevalent in the glamorous world of advertising. Yes! There were no barriers or borderlines to creating an ad. However, once you see the ten most controversial vintage ads you will surmise how drastic a change the ad industry has undergone, especially in terms of their perception toward racism and women. It also tells us a lot about the outlook and mindset of not only the ad-makers but also the audience. They were the ones who encouraged orthodox and conservative ideas and perceptions because they shared the same thought process. These vintage ads are a reminder of how much we have advanced with time and how liberal and human we are now!
