Beer In Ads #2271: Three Rings, Smoke Signals


Tuesday’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 Native American, and he’s making smoke signals, first one ring, then another and then a third. It’s an impressive job, I could never get more than a smudge of smoke whenever I tried it.
