Another great photo post from our visitor Richard with pics of car adverts from the ‘60s and ‘70s.
People who watched the Super Bowl on their TV have gone through at least 50 commercials and you’re not without knowing that publicists usually give their best for the biggest sports event of the year.
So, here is one top 10 of the best commercials of this year’s Super Bowl (XLVII) + 2 bonus videos.

Sometimes ad agencies prove their creative mettle by producing the following funny and very unique advertisements.
Companies will go to great lengths to catch consumers’ attention and the following are impressive examples of extreme marketing.
The previous part:
From WTF to creepy, weird, sexist, near paedophilia, racist, inappropriate… advertisements, there’s a bit of everything you hopefully won’t see nowadays.
The ‘politically correct’ can be annoying, but tasteless advertising is even worse. Luckily for us, society standards change and so does the advertising…
These disturbing and creepy ads are meant to either make you buy a product or shock you into awareness of a cause. However, they are more likely going to freak you out and cause nightmares.
Over the past few weeks, we got more complaints that advertisement on izismile.com appeared with a sound which is very annoying to watch the content on the site. It is even more annoying for those who are at work. This situation is very uncomfortable for us as well. We are against such advertising, and always fight with those advertisers who are unfairly trying to show these ad banners on izismile.
I want to emphasize once again; our internal policy include a total ban on display of any advertisement (audio and video) with automatic sound. You can play a video ad on the site to watch it but only you should be able to turn it on. In all advertising programs where izismile participates, we activated filters to prohibit display of advertising with automatic sound on our site.
Yesterday the first steps have been taken to eradicate such ads. Several advertisers were banned. We hope that you won’t see or hear advertising with automatic sound anymore. However, if you come across such a banner, then in order to help us remove it from the site, you'll need to do the following:
1. Make a screenshot of the banner with the sound.
2. Click on the banner and copy the link to the site where the banner leads.
3. Email me the link and the screenshot to email@example.com as soon as possible.
Only together can we overcome this stuff on Izi. Thank you.
PS. We’d like to ask all of you to take part in the poll inside this post and specify in the comments which country you are in (this is important because advertising with automatic sound is targeted, i.e. they will only show it in certain countries).
These amazing old advertisements for computers are really funny to us now. These are from the days where they still had to convince us that computers weren't an instrument of the devil, and that we would find them affordable and useful. From promises of better productivity to making us think it was sexy to have a computer, the advertisers pimped out Leonardo DaVinci and Dom Delouise to hawk their wares.
A photographer went to a bunch of fast food places, and bought stuff to compare to the ads. The results were not surprising. (from here)
