Tipalet – 1960s
This is probably one of the worst offenders when it comes to chauvinistic ads. This Tipalet flavored cigarettes advertisement quite literally instructs men to blow cigarette smoke into women’s faces, promising that this would actually bring good results as opposed to the more realistic slap in the face. Not only is this a terrible message, but on top of that, cigarettes are extremely unhealthy.
Schlitz Beer – 1960s
Schlitz Beer ran this advertisement that shows that once upon a time, pop tabs were not the default. In fact, Schlitz’s ad is saying that their can is much easier to open with a can opener thanks to their aluminum soft top. Using a can opener to open a can of beer has long not been an issue, so this is interesting to see.
