Out-of-Context Ad: Shop ‘Til You… Oh, Never Mind.

Filed under: Out-of-Context Ads — Brian Lutz @ 11:23 pm

This week’s Out-of-Context Ad also comes from 1976, where it looks like someone had just a bit too much excitement for one day (I’m kind of surprise the purse isn’t smoldering after an epic shopping spree like that.)  It’s pretty clear what’s going on, but what isn’t quite so clear is exactly what’s being advertised here.  Feel free to speculate in the comments.  The solution, as usual (if I’m not being too lazy anyway) will be posted next week.

And since I actually remembered to keep the solution for last week’s out-of-context ad, you will find it after the jump.

It’s another ad for Mayfair Markets, a now departed California supermarket chain which once had several locations on the Eastside and which has been the subject of the out-of-context ad previously.  I apologize for the quality of the image, but this one was a bit hard to read off the microfilm as well.
