Crazy Mersh

It's a lazy Sunday, and I found these old commercials that are just plain wrong.

This one set Chinese- American relations back 20 years:

Gary needs sensitivity training:

Here's a commercial in which they put radioactive dust (yes- radioactive!!! dust) on a model's face!

And- finally proof that Cigarettes are good for you!

The Gary's Mattress ad appears to be a fake, which is too bad because it is so over the top that it is not really offensive. I mean, it's so really offensive that it transcends offense. There used to be a real car dealer, I forget where I saw his ads- somewhere in my wandering youth- who destroyed cars- "Don't want a 4 door? (Yanks off door with great crash) We'll sell you a 2 door! Want tinted glass? (Smashes windshield with a sledge hammer) We'll take care of it! Like the car, hate the color? (Splashes several gallons of paint on car) What color do you want? We'll do what we have to to sell you the car you want!" Gary reminded me of him.
A friend from Cincinatti told me about a guy who would throw in a car for 89 cents with the purchase of a complete luxury Living room "suit". "They're not creampuffs but they'll get you to work. Get the kids to school and they're yours for 89 cents!" I don't watch TV anymore.

I used to have one of those Remco toy drive in theaters when I was a kid. Hadn't thought about that in years!
