55 Vintage Spoof Ads by MAD Magazine from the 1960s

MAD Magazine offers satire on all aspects of life and popular culture, politics, entertainment, and public figures. When William M. Gaines was the publisher and owner of the magazine, he refused to accept any form of advertising. This allowed him to spoof anyone and anything he desired.

Some of the magazine's best satire was in the form of a fake ad placed on the back cover, and occasionally inside the front cover. This collection showcases many of the best satirical ads from between the late 1950s and 1960s.

  1. MAD publisher Bill Gaines just went along with whatever his editors, first Harvey Kurtzman, then Al Feldstein, recommended. He wasn't the creative force behind MAD, just mainly the money guy.
