10 more vintage ads for men that had us scratching our heads

2013-10-11 08:51
Cape Town - A while back we discovered some vintage ads for men that were so sexually awkward we couldn't help but cringe.

Now we found 10 more retro ads that had us scratching our heads. We always hear the ladies complain that the media set some pretty unrealistic standards for them to live up to. But jeepers the lads sure don't have it easy either! Just look at what they expected from the male consumer way back in the days.

1) Firstly. He's a fucking cowboy! Secondly. Who the hell can fill a pair of underwear like that?!!!


2) So there it is. In black-on-white. A skinny man hasn't a chance!

3) Seriously? Seriously! Come on guys!


4) Oh, yeah. That's it. That's what turns men on. A sexy lady. Walking toward you. Absolutley sloshed. Hot.

(Jonnie Walker)

5) Back then real men showered together. And loved it.

6) Men that don't smoke aren't men. (Plus the eyes. Very unrealistic expectations of how men's eyes should look. Oh. Plus the full head of grey hair.)


7) As if it wasn't enough that you are paying for their education. Now you have to make an "ass" of yourself too.


8) "Hey sexy airline lady. Let me record your voice." Huh?!!!


9) A regular carpet just isn't good enough. She wants a Love Rug, dude or you ain't getting anything tonight.

(Love Rug)

10) Well. If you can't afford a Love Rug. You might need one of these.
