Even more awesomely vintage advertisements
Earlier this year I looked at several awesomely vintage comic book advertisements (such as the infamous Cube Lube) as well as a bunch of vintage and weird movie posters. Old vintage ads and posters are awesome and hilarious and they seemed to be pretty popular with readers. So I thought I’d take a look at some more vintage advertisements from my Flickr photostream.

Chuck Norris Action Jeans – “Won’t bind your legs” when you’re high kicking the sh*t out of some punk’s face. (Via Branded in the 80s)
Right Guard Lime Deodorant (’70s) – This is weird. Lime deodorant? I didn’t know it, but there still exists a Gillette Lemon-Lime Shaving Cream. What’s next? Is Kool-Aid releasing a deodorant flavored drink?
Rumple Mintze Peppermint Schnapps (1993) – This is the greatest liquor ad I have ever seen. EVER. Giant Battle Polar Bear, half naked warrior chick with an eye patch and a sword as big as she is, a frozen wasteland of snow and a huge bottle of ice-cold liquor. Rumple Mintze has just won advertising.
Lee clothing ad (1976) – Check out Willy Wonka here. That suit is awesome. He looks like the mayor of Munchkin City. Those pants look like a picnic table. Or a couch my grandmother had. And how ’70s is that yellow background? My parents’ kitchen had counter tops and appliances in that color. Why, ’70s?! Why?!
Champale (1975) – The chick on the right looks scared. And she should be. Mustache dude looks like he’s trying to get her drunk on Champale (was Boone’s Farm too expensive?). Then, instead of “Get set for living” it’ll be “Get set for raping”. Am I right?
