Free Love. Overpriced Furniture.


(click ads for closer look)
Yet another advertiser forcefully crams sex into the sell. Well, it's been used to sell a NYC condo development, non-toxic floor cleaners, ugly protective sunglasses, pheromone-infused hair gel, chicken dishes from an Indian restaurant, low-cost auto financing, and even fucking soup, for fucksake. Now, 1960s furnishings from Lorgan's retro store. I'd check for stains before purchasing. Nice sets/layouts. (images via)

Zoom in to the menage-a-tois one, you'll spot that she's got very hairy legs.

Yeah Bounder, that's the sixties for you. Free love with the great unwashed - eh, unshaven.

This is stupid. It's a prime example of self-indulgent ad dudes who just want to see how cool they can be.

I call bullshit. Don’t they shoot you on site for just chewing gum in public, let alone letting this run in mags there?

My parents had a similar dinette set. I hope all similarity ends there.

This is so fucking disgusting. I am so tired of women being treated like this in advertisements

I'm pretty sure that's my ex-girlfriend's silhouette in the first pic.

And she claimed no one would ever soil her silhouette but me...

Bigger, the gum thing has nothing to do with decency. The heat there is incredible. When people throw gum on the sidewalk or stick it places when they're finished chewing it it doesn't dry and harden. It becomes extra sticky or molds. It became a nightmare to clean. Too much time and money was being devoted to just the cleaning up of chewing gum so they banned it.

So people stopped having sex in the 1970s?

I'm confused.

Also, I think the hairy legs are supposed to belong to the guy in back.

Yes, I am studying these silhouettes too closely. Time to go look at porn.

I'm sorry...I had to pose for these. It was early in my career and I needed the money.

Absolutely amazing. Honestly, are there so few actual assets to the product that they need this type of distraction to sell it? I don't think I would be shopping for these "assets" when looking for furniture - unless you're looking for props for your next online porn video. Yuck.

I wish I wasn't amused by this. Yet I am.

You know where this comes from, right? It's a parody of the "obscene interiors" web site.
