DM pal Red Scharlach has been described as “the best purveyor of graphic crack out there.” It’s a fair description, as the talented Ms. Scharlach produces a delightful variety of daily material that is entertaining, clever, often thought-provoking and wee a bit obsessed with Benedict Cumberbatch... but in a nice way.
Today Scharlach has created an amusing response to an offensive advertisement from the supposedly liberated “Swinging Sixties.” Ahem.
Above, you see a genuine ad from Popular Science (1968), courtesy of newhousebooks. Below is the image that popped into my mind when I first saw it.
Perhaps there IS an upside to sexist retro advertising after all?
