"Coffee Jerks," An Examination of '50s and '60s Coffee Ads
YouTube / Shaun Clayton
Shaun Clayton made an amazing video in 2011, compiling incredibly sexist moments from old TV ads for, of all things, coffee. Clayton wrote, "I took a series of 1950's and 60's-era coffee commercials from the Prelinger Archives and edited them down to just the moments when the guys were the biggest jerks to their wives about coffee." For such a simple premise and such a short video (under a minute), this is amazing. Really makes me want to slap these coffee jerks. Happy Sunday!
For the record, my coffee is terrible. Sorry, everybody. Messed it up for the whole office again. I will accept your coffee-related criticism in the comments.
