Fake ads from MAD Magazine

The Vintage Ads LJ group's challenge this week is to find great fake ads. As always, Man Writing Slash comes through with a great compilation post, this one featuring some classics from MAD Magazine. I always liked the Stalin one here.

Mad Magazine "Ads"

4

  1. My favourite one was the fake Volkswagon one which said that Ted Kennedy wouldn’t have had that problem with the drowned secretary if he’d been driving a Beetle due to their sealed bottom.  Volkswagon and (I think) the Kennedy’s sued.  Just another day in the life of a magazine that’s been to the Supreme Court twice!

  2. I’m still kind of disturbed by the fact that MAD started having real ads a few years ago; parody publications should be making fun of corporate marketing, not promoting it.
