Retro Ads
Contest Directions: Modern advertising industry went through a lot of changes, restrictions and regulations - nowadays they can't use certain concepts and create misleading associations, they have to print warnings, and their ads have to be politically correct. But vintage ad wizards from 60-70 years ago practically stopped at nothing to sell their products.
Photoshop modern products (and services) into retro ads. Alternatively, put modern celebrities and politicians into retro ads. You can even do both.
