Advertisers face a tough challenge today. They have to market their product in a way that will entice consumers and keep their attention, but also be careful not to offend anyone in the process. Take, for example, Kendall Jenner's Pepsi ad and how much backlash that faced.
Back in the day before social media existed, it wasn't a big concern if your ad offended a lot of people...because they probably had no way of seeing it. Plus, political correctness was not then what it is now.
These are some of the craziest vintage ads we could find that would probably go over terribly in 2017.
