Beer In Ads #2103: This Calls For … Out In The Kitchen

Wednesday’s ad is for Budweiser, from 1962. In this ad, part of series entitled “This calls for …,” in this case “Out In The Kitchen.” Curiously, this ad almost exactly mirrors another ad from the same year, one that was called the Neighbors. But that ad had four African-American men in virtually the same positions as the four caucasians in this one. It’s even the same kitchen, although it’s been redecorated. You see that the chairs and cabinets are absolutely the same, but the tablecloth and wallpaper have been changed. It’s kind of hilarious. For all I know, they ran at the same time, but in publications with very different readerships.
