Beer In Ads #491: This Is The Banker Of Blue Ribbon Town

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?!

    Perhaps this ad was “inspired” by one of those 2 schmaltzy holiday flicks from that era:
    a) “It’s a Wonderful Life”; or
    b) “Miracle on 34th Street

    What I wonder is whether the guy is going to bang the server before/after he drinx the brew :)
