Politically Incorrect Friday

If you are missing “Mad Men,” or feeling nostalgic for the ads of yesteryear when doctors promoted smoking, then check out this retrospective from the Las Vegas Sun of politically incorrect ads. My friends at The Firm, Public Relations and Marketing in Las Vegas posted it today and I had to share. I’ve seen the one with the cigarette-smoking doctor many times, but the husband spanking his wife is a new one for me, as is the one that asks, “Is it ever legal to kill women?”

All the sexism and soda-guzzling babies (you’ll like that one when you see it) comes across as simultaneously malicious and artificially innocent, like Roger Sterling hitting on the secretary pool.
