(V)INTAGE – Blogging from A to Z

‘V’ is for “vintage” – ads. Most of these just left me shaking my head. I think it’s safe to say that advertising was a male dominated field back in the day.So a coconut, marshmallow coated, cream filled, chocolate cake for a head is what Hostess thought was glamorous?? They’re guys, it’s the car but nice of Chevrolet¬†to give a warning in their ad.
“All you ladies might as well be warned right now: You’re going to be the target for admiring eyes – perhaps a few whistles, too – in your slick new Chevrolet.”
Not one single case of throat irritation but maybe lung cancer? John Wayne beat his lung cancer in 1964 only to die of stomach cancer almost 20 yrs. later.. So sad.¬†Not entirely sure how this ad is selling pants but, um, okay… And what’s with the creepy kid ads?

Maybe those kids are the reason for so many ads like this.

And ya’ know, maybe it’s not so much the kids as her asshole husband over-reacting because she bought the wrong coffee.

Then again maybe all she needed was a vitamin.
“Gosh honey, you seem to thrive on cooking, cleaning and dusting – And I’m all tuckered out by closing time. What’s the answer?”
“Vitamins, darling. I always get my vitamins.”
And speaking of pep. I need to get a lit’l pep in my step because I’ve got a shit ton of stuff to get done! – Maybe I need a vitamin!

Our weathermen were wrong. We have a beautiful day filled with sun and temps in the 60’s so you can bet I’ll be out in it. Be well my faithful readers.
Only 4 more A to Z posts and then it’s back to our regularly scheduled programming!
Right about now this is the way I’m feeling about the A to Z Challenge.
