Last week I included a reference to a racist bit in Fawlty Towers that wouldn’t be allowed today (It’s Not Cricket’).
There are a lot of old ads that wouldn’t (and definitely shouldn’t) be allowed to run today.
Many are not just racist and/or sexist
– they are poor creatively in the first place and you wonder who the hell wrote them – and worse which idiots approved them.
And some are simply nonsensical
There’s a lot of ads that are bad now – but at least they aren’t so blatantly wrong!
