A classic example of a commercial with an unintended subtext would be Geritol's old "My wife, I think I'll keep her!" campaign, which aroused the anger of feminists.

I think even the makers of Geritol are embarrassed by it now. I tried searching for an example to link to, but I couldn't find one. But given the amount of old 70s/80s-era ads that are on youtube, I thought it was strange that not a single one was available, as if they'd been scrubbed off the net.
