Tuesday’s ad is for Ballantine, from 1959. In this ad, another simple one, a full glass of Ballantine Beer hovers above a beautiful ocean with a man fishing from a rock below. I’m not quite sure why that makes it “the largest-selling beer in the East” or why it’s “the crisp refresher,” but I am inexplicably thirsty.

Didn’t one of these ads have a Chinese guy who said, “Ballantine, largest-selling beer in East.” And the sound effects person punctuated the end of the commercial by bashing a gong?
