vintage polaroid ads
Polaroid just isn't what it used to be. Heck, the company isn't even the same company as it used to be.
"On October 11, 2001, Polaroid Corporation filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Almost all the company’s assets (including the “Polaroid” name itself) were sold to a subsidiary of Bank One. They went on to form a new company, which also operates under the name “Polaroid Corporation”. It stopped making Polaroid cameras in 2007 and stopped selling Polaroid film after 2009, to the consternation of many users."
The promos however may live on forever via Youtube. From 50's to 60's endorsements by the likes of talk hosts Steve Allen and Jack Paar, to late nineties commercials featuring Aaron Paul, now best know as Jesse from Breaking Bad.
If your feeling especially nostalgic fret not, you can still get Polaroid film thanks to The Impossible Project.
