ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Reminiscent of the gear in “Brazil”
I want my computer to look like the one in the Facebook ad….
Seems a lot like some Fallout-type action. Which is a very, very good thing.
The look is 1950s, but the text occasionally sounds more like the 1890s–”vigorous family bonds,” “splendid and captivating,” and the like. Needs more “terrific,” less “magnificent.”
yeah the copy reads really funny. clever idea nonetheless.
The ads were originally written in Portuguese, then translated into English. That’s why they read so funny.
kinda reminds me of this:
Them what likes this kind of thing will also like the “Vintage Ads” contests on Worth1000.com
great design and great idea!
I love this kind of vintage art :-)
reminds me of the tech in Bioshock
Very reminiscent of the art of Bob Clarke, who did some absolutely great work in Mad Magazine beginning in the 1950′s.
And Clarke came to Mad from … the ad business!
i spy keyboard cat :D
