:: vintage pop

Or I could have titled this one "Of Soda and Culture" :)
Last night at the gym, I saw a special on the history and marketing brilliance of the Coca-Cola industry.
So, I thought I would share one of their vintage commercials:

I think this could be considered "Classic American Art" in the film medium, don't you?

About the actual documentary:
It can be purchased here.
There's another NBC showing on October 3, as you can see here.
Or, (surprise!) you can watch it here whenever you please.

  2. I hope it's a Teddy-sized fan! That tiny, sweet pup could blow right away!
