Poodles and Cola=Stylin' in Mid-Century
Pepsi equated active, modern, and stylish people with drinking Pepsi Cola, and of course, you had to own a Poodle.
|1954-If you went to the beach, had a Poodle and had style, you had to drink Pepsi.|
This is probably my favorite ad of the group and I was able to snag one on ebay.
|1959-If you dress to the nines, have Poodles, you must drink Pepsi.|
Coca-Cola had the more family approach with their ads.
|1964-Even Santa drank Coke and brought Poodles for Christmas.|
This is the original oil painting for the ad by Haddon Hubbard "Sunny" Sundblom.
The painting's title is Things Go Better With Coke.
