Saturday’s ad is for Rheingold, from 1948. In the late 1940s and early 1950s, Rheingold recruited a number of prominent celebrities to do ads for them, all using the tagline: “My beer is Rheingold — the Dry beer!” In this ad, American stage, film, and television actor Franchot Tone, offers that if you help him fix his car, he’ll treat you to a glass of Rheingold Extra Dry.

Today is “Rubber Duckie Day” so designated because today in 1970 marked the first appearance of Ernie’s now-famous rubber duckie on Sesame Street. So while I was watching the Eagles manage to hold off the Falcons, I did a little search for rubber duckies drinking beer. I actually found more than I expected. Seem I like to keep it clean here.
