Almost Ads — Tupperware, 1969

Almost Ads — Tupperware, 1969

Funny Stuff
I can tell what Tupperware was going for in this ad -- which ran in a 1969 issue of Field & Stream by the way -- but here we have a demonstration of how a very subtle thing can turn a photo from cheeky to creepy. The wife is supposed to convey a mixture of surprise and mild annoyance. To my eyes she looks like she's stifling a scream while her husband polishes his rifle and mutters something about making them all pay. If you ask me, that woman about two seconds from dropping that soda and plate of cheese and running out of that rumpus room as fast as her legs can take her. (For more Almost Ads, click here.)
