These Hilariously Ridiculous Vintage Ads Will Make You Question Everything

Modern adverts are pretty sub-par.

Sometimes you see an ad and it’s just so lame and ineffective that you wonder how no one thought it was a bad idea? Like, it just falls flat so comically and hilariously, you wonder how so many people who worked on it didn’t wonder “is this really such a good idea?”

Well, if you thought modern ads were bad, just wait till you see vintage ads.
