A little bit more harmful
One of my favorite shows is Mad Men.
Not just because I love to look at Jon Hamm's sculpted face , or am endlessly entertained by the ridiculous amounts of drinking, adultery, sexism and racism rampant on the show. Also because I have a weird fascination with old-fashioned ads.
I mean, come on, look at all that copy.
I have a few vintage Playboy's from the early 60's and 70's and pretty much all the ads are like this; smaller pictures, usually black-and-white, and full of text. A whole monologue about shaving cream or Kotex Sanitary Belts (ew).
Honestly though, I prefer ads like these. They seem classier, somehow more mature?
Oh, and the lack of shitty photoshopping doesn't hurt, either.
