On the heels of yesterday's discussion of "issue advertising" and the rejected Man Crunch Super Bowl commercial, and with only five days to go before the big game, we recommend this incredible archive: Adland's 38 Years of Super Bowl Commercials. It's a treasure trove of nostalgia, with clips of everything from "Waaaasssup!" to 1984's Orewellian Mac epic to Jordan and Bird playing an other-worldly game of horse.This collection of high profile TV advertisements offers a lot more than simple nostalgia. It's also a record of the values, aesthetics, and aspirations of an entire nation-or at least what an era's marketers wanted those things to be.Via Coudal.
