Friday’s ad is for is by Ballantine Ale, from 1955. Most of this month I’ve been posting Brewer’s Gold ads from the 1950s, but I’ve shared all of the ones I could find, so for the remainder of the month there will be random Ballantine ads. In this ad, with the headling “Ballantine Beer Watches Your Belt-Line … with fewer calories than any other leading beer.” So essentially they’re touting its low-calorie properties a decade before the advent of lite beer or diet beer. The ad features another thin-waisted model, though I’m not sure if she was well-known or not. BUt I guess she had a small enough waist to get the job.
