c.1930s-1950s: Cellophane Ads Chris June 13, 2012 1930-1939, Ads & brands 13 CommentsFavourited 835 times Add to favourites 13 Responses RevIain June 13, 2012 Wow! What a great idea, I’ll rush straight home and wrap some babies in cellophane! Reply Major Ursula June 13, 2012 @revIain great idea! Nothing could possibly go wrong with that plan! Reply Pastafarian June 13, 2012 It’s not a product “idea.” They’re not recommending that you go home and wrap your kid in cellophane. It was intended as a humorous, eye-catching visual illustrating the sanitary nature of cellophane and how it preserves freshness. This nuance is apparently lost on a dumbed down modern culture who takes everything literally. Reply sesameleigh June 15, 2012 i’m going out on a limb – but i think most folks get the intended message, but they are also able see and appreciate the dark humor that you may be choosing to refuse. seeing a baby wrapped up in plastic is a jarring image in modern times (you’d think it would be back then, too, regardless of the product’s novelty). Reply Greg June 13, 2012 And isn’t it just-so-CUTE when they turn blue and start flailing around. Almost as if they are trying to tell you something… Reply Michael June 13, 2012 Helps the kids take a little extra long nap so Mom can relax for a few minutes….. Reply Nate June 14, 2012 @ Pastafarian – I have a feeling you wouldn’t be too much fun at parties. Reply Steve June 14, 2012 Wow! Some of you people must have no clue what sarcasm is LOL Do you really think they were serious about the baby comments Pastafarian? Reply ap June 21, 2012 so… are the “Intimate garments” MADE of cellophane, or just PACKAGED in it? Reply Maggie June 27, 2012 ap, I wanted to know that too. Cellophane knickers…. mmmm comfy! Reply brax July 2, 2012 The cellophane keeps the undergarments “as fresh and clean as when they left the factory” formaldehyde included. Reply Bianca July 22, 2012 Pro Aborting much? Reply Melynda September 21, 2012 Someone really liked the wrapping babies in cellophane ad campaign… The cheese one made me laugh. Actually they all pretty much did.
