Beer In Ads #916: Tally Ho


Monday’s ad is for Budweiser, from 1949. Part of Bud’s long-running “There’s nothing like it” series, but is odd for depicting a more traditionally English fox and hounds hunt, which I suspect was not part of ordinary life for most, if even many, Americans in late forties. More curious still, is in the text at the bottom it reads: “There’s more Budweiser now — and there will be still more as our expansion program continues.” That seems like an odd message to be telling consumers, but maybe this ad was intended for a narrower audience.
