It’s time to dust off those vintage bottles of pop and booze we found in the cellar of TVTA towers as we bring you another Non-toy ad Tuesday… retro drinks from around the world!
First up is 1987 sporty beverage Faxe Kondi – presented here by budding young goalkeeper Mikael and Danish International and Manchester United football player Jesper Olsen.
Denmark. Anders. 1987.
1982 and another Danish drink ad. This one is cheerfully called Jolly Cola and continues with a sporty theme – sailing. Just look at the way that young sailor is necking his bottle of JC … he’s sure to get some additional ‘wind’ assistance later 🙂
Denmark. Anders. 1982.
Moving on to some harder stuff – alcohol. This French ad for personalised Kronenbourg beer tankards is aimed at a military-interest audience. The ad is featured in a 1979 issue of Képi Blanc, a journal created in 1947 by the French Foreign Legion (légion étrangère).

Here’s another French alcoholic beverage, this time a fruit liqueur from 1987, La Belle Sandrine.
France. Paris Match. 1987.
Guinness makes you fart (more wind assistance?). No, Guinness gives you strength. Below is a 1960s-era postcard for the famous Guinness stout.

Followed by a good excuse to show off my Guinness retro metal plate advert.
Guinness is good for you.
Which gives me a further excuse to show off my cool Alec Guinness / Guinness mashup tee 🙂
Obi Wan was never tempted by the dark side?
Okay, that’s enough Guinness. Now to tidy this post up with two Brazillian healthy drink ads from the 1980s – Neston and Nescau.
Brazil. Ze Carioca. 1985.

And to finish – and as it’s so close to Christmas – a Christmassy ad… courtesy from Chivas Regal Scotch Whisky, 1980.
