Sunday’s ad is for Ballantine, from 1940. In this ad, part of a series progressing from one, to two, to three rings, this one shows a trio of camels riding in circles in front of the Sphinx in Egypt. Their path first makes one circle in the sand, then a second, with no reaction, as you’d expect, from the statue. But after they make a third one, mirroring the Ballantine three-ring logo, the Sphinx smiles and waves to them. Personally, I think they’ve just had one too many Ballantines.
