I am one of those people who genuinely enjoys the essentially meaningless bits of cultural detritus that ebb and flow like driftwood throughout the swampy ecosystem of our combined consciousness. If I see a decades-old Coke bottle in a vacant lot, I am likely as not to pick it up, try to remember the last time I saw one like that, maybe even take it home, clean it up and set it on a shelf next to my old copies of Mad Magazine for a few years. I am often amused and even fascinated by old newspapers, magazines, dated advertisements, old pop-culture stuff that must have seemed new, fresh, and vibrant at one time but has become laughably dated if not hopelessly obscure.
Like this old coffee ad, which suggests that a good marital ass-beating is the proper response to stale coffee and bad shopping habits. Ah, those were the days!
