My first Contest Entry:-

I found a whole little selection of weight control adverts over at http://www.boredpanda.com - and it was very interesting to note that weight loss wasn't always as desirable as it is today - there were quite a few weight gain ads too !! The weight loss aids however, were sometimes a little frightening - my favourite was this :-

Uh Oh, It's Faygo!

I was talking to a friend who grew up in Del Rey, Detroit. The topic of Insane Clown Posse came up, and he said he never heard of them when living there in the 80s and 90s, but he certainly did remember Faygo, and started quoting the "which way did he go? he went for FAYGO!" buzz line... apperantly, it wasnt always Juggalo Juice... which got me curious as to what commercials I could find....
