Nice design, but the copy on those "ads" sucked. Even in the 50s, writing ad copy wasn't just slapping together a bunch of random positive descriptors in broken english.

I was waiting for ads with women wearing 50/60's era missile tit bras.

Isn't there a German electronics company whose website looks like that?  Nothing but cartoon animated GIFs, and you have to scroll left and right - even on a 1720px monitor - to see it all.

Also, anachronistic hairstyles. Nobody's hair would be even slightly messed up. The first guy looks like a 21st century hipster. In the 70s, his hair would have been perfectly combed, probably with a generous application of hairspray as well.

How come with Skype you only require a headset on one side?

The Skype one looked like it could fit right in the fallout world. Though Bethesda would have thought of some more clever copy.

What about retro ads for Brazzers and Ogrish?

The first ad failed for using the phrase "24/7", which didn't even exist 15 years ago, much less 50 years ago.

2chris2: Notices vintage ad mentions 24/7; doesn't notice YouTube isn't 50 years old.

Because the person lashing together images from the usual sources you go for such things couldn't find one of someone wearing a similar headset?

I was hoping for some really vintage ads, from the early 1900s. "Amazon allows you to buy any-thing on-line, from buggy whips to cocaine tonic".
"Craig's-List job listing: Irish need not apply".
"The I-Phone: it's a telephone, it's a computing device, it's so easy to use, even a women-folk could do it. Now only 27 pounds".
