Old Coffee Commercials Were Sexist (Video)

    Here’s the formula for a coffee commercial in the 1950’s: wife is being obedient and submissive, usually cleaning, cooking, or doing other household chores. Husband complains about wife’s crappy coffee-making skills, and then wife is introduced to new brand of coffee which is so good that even a senseless, incompetent idiot like herself couldn’t screw it up. Youtube user ShaunClayton created this fabulous montage that compiles only the really sexist parts from a bunch of old coffee commercials, and it’s truly priceless. Oh, how far we’ve come in only 60 short years! Enjoy the sexism!
