Ads they don’t run any more

They don’t run these sorts of ads anymore. I remember many of these sorts of ads. It’s amazing how far we have come in the past 50 years, and this gives me a glimmer of hope for the future.

    Makes me wonder which of today's ads will look anachronistic, idiotic, or offensive, a half-century from now. Ads for SUVs comes quickly to mind — perhaps even ads for all fossil-fuel-burning motor vehicles. Also, plenty of today's ads still portray women solely for their physical attributes. However, it's hard to imagine ads for entire categories of products going extinct, along the lines of what has happened to tobacco ads. Maybe ads for unhealthy fast foods or 'supersized meals' (which, in fifty years, might then be a leading cause of preventable death, just as tobacco is today).
