Historical Ads that Wouldn’t Fly Today

They aren’t any kind of April Fools prank; these are actual ads.  Ranging from sexist to just plain odd, these ads are quite a sight.  Check out the full collection at The Chive (who I credit for the original post).

Mega Man 10 Retro Ad

For the release of Mega Man 10, Capcom put together an awesome new commercial that looks straight out of the ’80s. Check it out below:

The game is available for download on the Wii, PS3, and XBox 360 and features classic 8-bit graphics.  I think that the retro commercial style was a definitely an original idea and the perfect way to reflect the game’s style.

Thanks to Unreality for the original post.
