STRANGE & OFFENSIVE ADS FROM YESTERYEAR
FROM COCAINE TOOTHACHE DROPS TO DOUGHBOY LUST

Back in the early 1900s, cocaine was a common ingredient in many products, including Coca Cola.  But no product was preferred by kids to treat their toothaches, than Cocaine Toothache Drops.  The boy in this ad is tweaking so hard, he's going to build a whole city out of sticks before he crashes.

Of course, harmful drug advertisements didn't go out with the turn of the century (last century), as this 40s ad for Camel Cigarettes shows.  "The Doctor's Choice is America's Choice" slogan makes you wonder if there's something sinister about all of those dentists who recommend Trident.  They close the ad with "Remember the 'T-Zone' (T for Throat, T for Taste)", but they forgot the third "T for Tumors".

Though she's more of a modernized Oprah Winfrey looking gal in today's ads, Aunt Jemima had some pretty offensive beginnings.  I haven't seen such an offensive character hawking breakfast food since Tony The Tiger went through that horrible Ku Klux Klan phase.  "LAWSY ME!"

I'm sure this was a great ad for the 70s, but hindsight makes this World Trade Center ad an awfully morbid one.  This is from the same eerily prophetic agency that brought you "Have a Blast On The Hindenberg!"

Here's an odd ad from an old Sears Catalog that features special boot-socks so you can fool your friends into thinking your wearing real boots!  "Its a kicky new idea that gives her the latest look in fashion footwear at a reasonable price."  I think Carrie wore these before the girls in the locker room kicked her ass.

Here's a creepy ad my friend Randy found in an old Sunset magazine for a carpet company, that's so soft, your kids will fall asleep on it like its their bed!  Looks to me like the crayons were laced with cyanide.

Looks like she's pressing her finger a bit low to be reaching his belly!  No wonder he's smiling!
