Last year we gazed back into the golden age of arcade and video game advertising, when ad agencies went all in on sexy (and often sexist) ad campaigns. It was a very different time. Well, there were more than enough examples to warrant a sequel post, so here it is. This time, with 100% more Elvira!
Based on these ads, playing video games in the 1970s and 1980s was considered extremely sexy. Well, I was there and I can tell you, that notion is false. The ads might’ve lied to us, but they sure were memorable (and not always for the right reasons).
Get your joysticks ready; it’s time for another 8-bit journey back in time.
I write about movies, pop culture, Michelle Pfeiffer and more in order to make sense of the world around me. Hopefully my personal writing will feel universal to readers. That's the goal.
