Social-media sites get vintage ad treatment


You've gotta love these vintage-style ads for social-media sites, such as "Twitter: The sublime, mighty community with just 140 letters!" Check out four full-size executions here. While it might look like the results of a clever Photoshop contest, this is actually a campaign from Brazilian agency Moma to promote Maximedia Seminars. The tagline on the second page of each spread is: "Everything changes fast. Update." While some of the English is a bit rough, the São Paolo shop deserves credit for capturing the aw-shucks enthusiasm of golden-age American advertising, with lines like the description of YouTube as a place to "send and watch splendid and captivating films." The real proof these ads aren't actually vintage? There's not a single woman getting spanked or male lust tarp in sight. Thanks to my friend Bill for pointing me to this on Laughing Squid.
