Beer Ads – Day Three

Beer ads, like commercials in general, are a good indicator of the changing times.

For instance, people in the early 1980s clearly saw nothing wrong with the “Boobs and Butts” ad I posted yesterday but there’s just no way a beer company – or any other company for that matter – would make such an ad today.

Then there’s the changing way race is dealt with. Today, no-one would think it wise to include a crass Chinese voice-over in an ad. And yet, back in 1958, that’s just what Genesee Beer did. The ad obviously didn’t do the company any harm but I’m sure it’s an ad they not looking to remake any time soon.
