    Strange Old Ads

    Found these while searching flickr.
    If anyone here can explain the ‘Pears Soap’ one I will give them three rep point votes!
























    I had one of these when I was a kid.

    Hehe, funny pics.

    But the soap one, honestly, I think it doesnt have a deeper sense, although the image reminds me on german saying 'pour out the baby with the bath'... dont know, guess it only made it because it's a cool pic
    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit

    Velvet, I think you came up with the most plausible answer.
    Check out a few of the flickr comments that I found underneath it:

    "Talk about throwing the baby out with the bathwater!"

    "So, we shouldn't throw out the bathtub with the baby."

    "British advertising at its best - scare them into having a wash."

    "This is horrifying! I can't imagine people being influenced to buy anything by this - especially soap!"

    "What is this ad trying to say? Too weird..."

    "I just don't understand it!!! weird as hell."

    "Looks dementedly religious, like something William Blake would paint."

    "No wonder I never buy Pears..."

    "Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Soap, and we'd love to have this added to the group!"
