When William M. Gaines was the publisher and owner of MAD 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 the mid 1950’s thru the early 1970’s.
