Why you should buy Folgers coffee: because if you're a wife you're completely inept at making coffee and want to please your husband, and if you're a husband you're tired of drinking your wife's crummy coffee, which turns you into a mega jerk.

YouTube user ShaunClayton edited down coffee commercials from the '50s and '60s to capture the husbands' jerkiest moments.
