Ads that I like: #95


Here is a nifty little ad from China circa 1952 with the catchy slogan of "Resolutely cut off the bloody and criminal hand of the American aggressor that spreads germs".

It's something that modern day ads often miss these days: the fine art of subtlety.

I miss the Cold War.

It's all Chinese to me. Do you think that then ads worked?

Where do you get cufflinks like that?

Makes Soviet-era attitudes to the West look positively tame.

I stand mortified. I have just reread my answer. It should read: Do you think that these ads worked?

Kris said...

Me, the Soviets are gone, the Chinese run the joint!

Roddy, BAH!
