Giant dancing forks, a flight… READ MORE »

Italian fashion label Patrizia Pepe wanted to draw attention to the designer herself, so they created this “Who is Patrizia?” ad campaign.

You can thank the “Mad Men” episode about Pond’s Cold Cream for reminding us of an era when advertising appealed directly to a stereotyped female psyche. As Freddy says about Pond’s: “If young girls started using it, maybe they’d find a husband and they wouldn’t be so angry … if you use Pond’s you’ll get… READ MORE »

This clip from a 1922 Kodak color film test is one of the earlier color films in existence. Watching it, I can’t help wondering about the actresses shown. What were their lives like on the heels of women’s suffrage and the cusp of the flipper era? Were they married? Did they go on to… READ MORE »

God, I love me some pretzel crisps — dipped in hummus and with slices of cheese, they are delish. But I am mad at them. Their new ad campaign is straight-up wrong. Look, I get it, the appeal of pretzel crisps is that they are thin like crackers and, in theory, better for you than… READ MORE »
