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.
