Creepy Advertising

This is just something that made me giggle. In search of inspiration from old adverts, I hit upon this collection of gems, courtesy of These are just some of the ones that creeped me out most, but there are plenty more. Advertising is something I’m fascinated by, and a little scared by… The power of it, how it taps into our subconscious and how it reflects how culture and society changes over time. I mean, there are plenty of contemporary adverts that creep me out too (Glade Touch ‘n’ Fresh. Need I list the reasons!?) Atleast these have some antiquated charm.
