Vintage Ads That Range From Weird To Offensive

Advertising is absolutely unavoidable these days. We're inundated by promotions on television, our email inboxes, and everywhere on the internet. Sometimes we wish that these attempts at snagging our money were a little bit more creative. Perhaps a little more like the advertising of yesteryear. These bizarre ads are a sort of trippy advertising time capsule. Some of their weirdness comes from the actual products (sauna pants?) and then there are the absolutely inappropriate ads that would never receive an "okay" in this day and age. But they're all pretty damn entertaining.

Ryan Reynolds Uses Peloton Wife For Hilarious Gin Ad

Remember the uproar over Peloton's Christmas ad? We doubt you can forget. The luxury exercise bike company has been receiving flack (and has inspired a whole lot of memes) since it first aired last week. The uproar seems to have caught the eye of Ryan Reynolds, who hired the ad's actress Monica Ruiz for an advertisement for his Aviation gin. The advertisement features Ruiz and two friends at a bar with martinis. Ruiz looks...shaken, and her friends encourage her to drink away her pain, saying "You're safe here." The trio toasts to new beginnings, insinuating that the Peloton wife has parted ways with her husband. The ad is pretty genius, and people on Twitter seem to agree. It's also, according to Reynolds, a way to help Ruiz after a role that could prove to be alienating.That's a win-win in our book.
