worse ads

The products are/were the real problem, I suppose.

Offensive & Politically incorrect advertising and propaganda:No fuss, to the point racist packaging. What you see here is an old Norwegian brand of tar/varnish used on wood burning ovens. It’s been out of production for a good while now, but boxes like this can still be found tucked away in old dusty closets in Norway. more examples of mindblowing advertising here

negro head oysters

In the US and the UK, the word nigger featured in branding and packaging consumer products, e.g. “Nigger Hair Tobacco” and “Niggerhead Oysters”, Brazil nuts were called nigger toes, et cetera. As racism became unacceptable in mainstream culture, the tobacco brand became “Bigger Hare” and the canned goods brand became “Negro Head”.
