Awhile before today I wrote about my love for vintage advertisements. I am not speaking of those types you find blown up and made into posters that you can buy at Pottery Barn, though I enjoy those too. I more specifically like the ones made when sexism and political correctness did not have a presence in the minds of those who came up with ad campaigns. Here is another of those ads:
This ad is hanging on the wall of my prodominately pink bathroom. I don’t hate pink by any means, but I was a bit set off at the bathroom. It is tiled mostly pink with a bit of black. Placed there, I believe, when the building was built in 264BC.
This lady is obviously feminine, for she chose the most feminine color of shampoos. I assume then that Selsun Blue must be for men. Here is all that jazz at the bottom in larger print for you old folks who remember this ad when it was in your McCalls circa 1969.
I am indeed a girl. So yes, I must find this. My hair will exude wealth and he’ll notice the pink. It’s a win-win.
