History textbooks often skip what life was like for the everyday, average person in the past. One way to really step inside of history it to take a look at vintage advertisements. And because we all need a little humor in our life, I present…drumroll…Throwback Thursdays. Enjoy. Or at least roll your eyes in scorn.
I find this one just plain weird. Honestly. The wife isn’t doing her “job” right and he spanks her. Like she’s a 3-year old. In this case, the “job” she isn’t doing right isn’t store-testing for fresher coffee. I have to be honest: I have no idea what store-testing is. Anyway, Chase & Sanborn Coffee used the below advertisements in an attempt to boost sales. I wonder if it worked?
Do any of you, my dear readers, have any idea what “store testing” is? Or have any great sexist vintage ads you would like to share?
