The Most Sexist Commercial of All Time!

Believe it or not, the preceding image was not created via Photoshop. That ad is 100 % real and there was once a time when people could get away with releasing something like that. As you can imagine, sexist advertising was incredibly common during the 1950s and 60s and it seems that some of the worst offenders happened to be the coffee companies. There are a plethora of sexist coffee commercials available for viewing on Youtube, but the worst one may be this ad from Folgers, where the underlying message clearly seems to be: “If you don’t make good coffee for your husband, he has every right to cheat on you with one of the girls at the office”. Don Draper from Mad Men would be proud.
