OK, smartasses. What the FUCK is going on in this retro Perma-lift girdle ad? A Venus statue with fall foliage about its feet and a partially-eaten apple sitting on its head. GO AHEAD—interpret away in the comments, geniuses. This is even more puzzling than the 1958 lipstick lesbians in $1.00 bras ad, the 1968 American Airlines hot mom stewardess ad, and the 1959 why is the Marlboro man in Paris ad. (image via)
