Beer In Ads #491: This Is The Banker Of Blue Ribbon Town Posted on December 5, 2011 by Jay Brooks Tweet Monday’s ad is a somewhat creepy one from 1943 for Pabst Blue Ribbon. I’m sorry, but those blue ribbon people I find just way too freaky. And how about that copy? “This is the Banker of Blue Ribbon Town who formerly wore a Peppermint Frown.” WTF?!
