Controversial Vintage Ads

Ad for Men's Tie

Take a look at these controversial vintage ads from magazines that advertised cigarettes, alcohol, vitamins, guns, and men’s ties. It’s funny to see what was perfectly acceptable back then – sticking babies and guns in the same ad, multiple counts of male chauvinism, a few racist ads, and even one that’s amusing because it has Ronald Reagan (who was a B actor back then) peddling cigarettes.

    Reagan had a long history of peddling death.

  2. instead of cigarette smoking or chewing cigarette, it will be difficult in my
