Beer In Ads #2275: Three Rings, Polar Bears


Saturday’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 polar bear fishing in a stream. With each failed attempt reaching his paw into the water, creating a ring. Three times he tried and failed, the fish is seemingly laughing at the bear; but at the least, his efforts created the Ballantine logo.
