Long before it was fashionable to be perpetually outraged, the world was somewhat OK with being “politically incorrect.” Long gone are those days! We’d do well to recall Proverbs 19:11, which says: “Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense.”
We live in an age of thin-skinned folk, ready to be offended by just about everything imaginable, from racism against Orcs in Tolkien’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ to Will Smith not being ‘black enough’ to act as Serena Williams’ father on film.
That said, here’s a compilation of past commercials you won’t believe they actually got away with in their day!
