Images of the day: Cuban advertising before and after the Castro dynasty destroyed the country

From our Bureau of Lethal Nostalgia

In 1957, when Tres Fotutos was in first grade, he never saw this ad, and he wasn’t able to sample the product being peddled. But the good Christian Brothers at La Salle de Miramar did warn him to avert his gaze from such images, and to abstain from alcoholic beverages, lest he risk ending up in Purgatory for millennia, or maybe even in Hell for eternity.

A vanished world, for sure, in all respects. Replaced by something truly hellish.

The real thing

The replacement

  1. Ah, but the replacement is so much more, you know, appropriate for a third world shithole–which is what Cuba was always supposed to be, anyway. It was never supposed to be stylish or sophisticated.
