i honestly do find 1950s American ads the creepiest shit ever

i think i generally find that entire era unnerving…under the veneer of prosperity after WW2, sooooo much shit was going on. And of course, McCarthyism, nuclear drills etc…

by comparison i feel the 40s or 60s in the US were at least seen as more troubled and less perfect times (hard to do it with WW2, Vietnam, the civil rights movement)…how do i put it? there wasn’t as much of this shiny, plastic veneer of perfection that you can’t help but feel is manufactured. it’s treated as the era of the ‘American dream’ by many who romanticise it, with neatly trimmed suburban lawns, with the perfect nuclear family- all the while nuclear annihilation, domestic violence and racism simmers underneath…
