THE BEST ADS FROM THE DECADE THAT FIRST SAW AMERICA EMERGE AS A SUPERPOWER. IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE THAT THE COMPANY WHO MADE YOUR ULTRA-COMPACT MOBILE PHONE WAS ONCE ADVERTISING PORTABLE RADIOS WITH MOTOROLA: MORE RADIO PLEASURE FOR LESS MONEY, OR THAT ONCE UPON A TIME, ELECTROLUX DIDN'T HAVE ANY QUALMS ABOUT USING MANDY, THE PORTLY BLACK MAID, TO PROMOTE THEIR NEW SILENT REFRIGERATORS: ""LOR-DY, IT SURE IS QUIET!"" AMONG THESE SURPRISING AND CONTROVERSIAL 40s ADS, YOU'LL ALSO FIND SOME FAMILIAR PRODUCTS THAT, AMAZINGLY, HAVEN'T CHANGED AT ALL OVER THE YEARS, SUCH AS JUICY DOLE PINEAPPLES AND WHOLESOME CAMPBELL'S SOUP. YUMM.
