Beer In Ads #941: The Falstaff Gorilla Parachutes


Saturday’s bonus ad is our final one for Falstaff, again from 1964. It’s the sixth, and last that I know of, in an odd series of ads featuring a gorilla that Falstaff did that year. This one shows the gorilla having just parachuted from, presumably, an airplane. For the look on his face, things didn’t go to well. Luckily, his smiling gal pal has a six-pack of Falstaff to soothe the savage breast.

Beer In Ads #940: The Falstaff Gorilla Rides A Motorcycle


Friday’s ad is still another one for Falstaff, again from 1964. It’s the fifth in an odd series of ads featuring a gorilla that Falstaff did that year. This one shows the gorilla riding a motorcycle with his blue-suited companion riding behind. Luckily they remembered to pack a case of Falstaff cans, which is strapped to the very back of the motorcycle with bungee cords.
