Sexist Goodyear Commercial from '70s

WTF?!

Ahh, 1970. It was a very Goodyear bad year for women and being taken seriously. This Goodyear ad for polyglas tires, which is set up like a horror film complete with a menacing soundtrack, claims that "when a woman's at the wheel, polyglas means more than mileage." Alert the press! Woman on the road! Hide your children! The earth may spin off its axis! (No wonder the '70s was a huge decade for the women's movement.)

Thanks, Feministing!

that music is priceless. It's bad enough her tires are goodyear, plus she's a dangerous to everyone because she's behind the wheel.

I'm DYING over here. The Psycho-esque music when she starts driving? Priceless.

Now I see where these guys nowadays always say women can't drive. They've been listening to the old man from the commercial.
