Beer In Ads #2269: Three Rings, Smoke Rings


Sunday’s ad is for Ballantine, from 1949. In this ad, part of a series progressing from one, to two, to three rings, this one shows a woman cooking up a fish on a campfire, presumably caught by her fisherman husband standing next to her. As the fish cooks, it adds rings. Maybe that’s how you know it’s done; when it reaches three rings? Wouldn’t that be handy?
