“Sham-Bug’s Convincing Beat-a-Check Soup Kit”
Washington-based John (“Jasperdo”) has created a fantastic Flickr set of spoof advertisements that were originally published in print copies of MAD Magazine, dating from the mid-1950s to the early 1970s. He says: “When William M. Gaines was the publisher and owner of MAD Magazine, he refused to accept any form of advertising. This allowed him to spoof anyone and anything he desired. Some of the magazine’s best satire was in the form of a fake ad placed on the back cover, and occasionally inside the front cover.”
