Beer In Ads #651: Duck, Duck, Rheingold

Monday’s ad begins another week of Rheingold Beer ads, another one from 1953, featuring Miss Rheingold for that year, Mary Austin. In this ad, she’s hunting ducks from a rowboat, and her faithful dog has retrieved her latest kill. Whenever you look at beer ads from the 1960s and before, scenes depicting hunting are far more common than nowadays. Does anyone know if hunting is less common now or is it simply that’s it’s not a politically correct activity anymore.
