Ads are kind of like your awkward teenage years. Think about it: When you're actually experiencing them, every second feels an angst-ridden eternity. Look back a couple decades later, though, and it's damn near impossible not to laugh.

No siree -- with antiquated ads, you can revisit the comedy of bad choices without suffering a single ounce of personal humiliation.
