More Retro Ads

Welcome to BOMBIPPY.
The Weird news from all over the globe website has a nice collection of retro ads that I haven’t seen before.

Where would we be without Gillette and their safety razor?

My favourite from this bunch of ads is the one for ‘prompt control of senile agitation’. I think I’ll send my father a bottle of Thorazine. That should calm the old man down for a little while.

The Tipalet cigar ad is amusing in a ‘Mad Men’ sort of way. Had I know that I could “hit her with tangy Tipalet cherry” cigar smoke and have her follow me anywhere I would have started smoking Tipalet when I was a youngster. Too bad they didn’t advertise in the comic books back then.
