In the past I have posted vintage ads that have been racist, sexist, weird, creepy, or which inappropriately included children, or sometimes a combination of the foregoing.
Today’s vintage ad embodies all those aspects, plus it is totally inexplicable.
I have tried to find out more about the ad but haven’t had much success beyond the fact that it dates from World War 2.
“Blitzkrieg” is German for “lightning war”, a German military tactic based on speed and surprise, using tanks, infantry, artillery and air power.
The wrongness of the ad is readily apparent, but my queries are
• Even during WW2 and allowing for different cultural perceptions of the time, would such an ad have inspired you to go to Bobb’s Bar?
• What does the ad have to do with promoting a bar?
