Beer In Ads #2265: Three Rings, Northern Lights


Wednesday’s ad is for Ballantine, from 1950. In this ad, part of a series progressing from one, to two, to three rings, this one shows the multi-colored northern lights with a native Inuit man (which they would have undoubtedly called an Eskimo when the ad originally ran) in the snow next to a giant bottle and glass of Ballantine Ale.
