Surely we’re not the only ones grossed out by Ragu’s recent ads that position the jarred pasta sauce as the perfect meal for kids who’ve walked in on their parents mid-coitus. (It’s cheaper than years of therapy!) And yet, it turns out that they’re part of a long and disturbing tradition of creepy commercials for kids’ food. While these freaky ads of yesteryear don’t feature any banging parents, they do offer giddy clowns, talking eggs, and trenchcoat-sporting grannies shilling for Burger King. Take a stroll back in time and congratulate yourself for making it through childhood.
