AdViews: Vintage Television Commercials

EBRPL Online Resource

AdViews, from Duke University, is a retrospective archive of television commercials. They were all broadcast between the 1950s and the 1980s. There are currently 240 commercials online, how many do you remember?

The advertisements are an entertaining step back in time. As well as the ads themselves, there are interviews with advertising experts discussing them and seeing how they compare to the advertising of today. There is also an interactive quiz where you can test your knowledge on the subject. Here is an index of the commercials by brand.
