Advertizing

Looking at old print ads can be entertaining, some show a glimpse of what the world was like at that time,
or what the ad agency wanted people to think the world looked like.
They often show how far you have to go to catch the Jones.

People wanted to be fat as the Jones in 1878...

This is interesting, Ronson spending money to advertise something you can't buy.
A lot of companies did that during the war, I guess those war profits were burning a hole...

Here's my old buddy Reddy Kilowatt, I've had my picture taken with him, or with a lifesize picture of him, dozens of times.
Reddy would make all the youth fairs for an electric company dude to take a B&W Polaroid of Reddy with any kid&animal to win a ribbon.
If Reddy was too drunk they brought a huge backdrop with Reddy's picture on it.

Now here's a great idea from a museum, anyone caught being a baddie gets tattooed all over.
That's much cheaper then providing 3 squares and a cot for years.

1933 sank a lot of businesses. This tire dealer got his own campaign going on.
They may not buy from him but they'll sure as hell know who he is.

Now this looks like a typical post war Indian motocycle ad but it's wrong.
Indian was alway Motocycle, never ever Motorcycle.

Compared to this French ad from 1952 showing a guy dressed like an accountant or lawyer shuffling veggies on a trike.

She may not be a "little person" but that's definitely a mini-bar.

Speaking of pink butts, it wouldn't take much CAT to put one of those AA lamps about half way up.
Anyway, sardine seating has won the day.

Another thing you see in ads as you see in music lyrics, language changes.

Hyperbole was the norm for the mad men.
If you couldn't buy or didn't want carbonated Root beer for a quarter Hires would mail you a packet of magic ingredients to mix with 5 gallons of water.

Ads on convenience improvements should win points unless they fall off the ramp...
