The old ads of the 40's 50's and 60's are hilarious. And so politically incorrect. And that's why when I found a collection of old "Bad" ads, I thought they would be a great highlight to WFGR's Retrovision!
Ahh the 1950's and 60's. Back when men were men. And TV was TV. AND ads were ADS. Advertising was in it's golden age. Not only could you watch Fred Flintstone smoking a Winston, but you could touch topics that back in the day were just part of life. Today, it's just too politically correct of a time to be able to produce the advertising of a by gone era.
Think back to all of the great SNL bits over the years. So many great ones you choose from, but this still has to be in my top 5. The first few years of SNL were truly classic, and this is now over 30 years old, but still just as funny
Yes July is a couple days away, and yes "Christmas in July" is the most over played, burnt out gimmick of all time ever to get your attention....but we are not above using a standard to get you to have a laugh at Lenny and Squiggy
I will give you a couple of hints. He used to be a semi-famous dad on TV's "Malcolm in the Middle" along side Star Frankie Muniz. He also currently plays a "Bad" guy on TV's "Breaking Bad" Gee, I wonder who that could be? Hmmm.
You know what the WFGR Retrovision is all about...we find cool pictures or videos that look back in time at stuff. Sometimes it's a commercial or a clip from an old TV show. Today it's a picture. A very odd picture.
It was 24 years ago today the uprising in Tiananmen Square happened. Chinese riots and the subsequent changes inside the Peoples' Republic. Watch this WFGR Retrovision of the most indelible image of the standoff.
