I’ll be safer on Pullman than you two at Home! [1941]

Well heck! Why not just stay on the train all the time?!?!? Well, no wait a minute, this was also a time in history when 9 out of 10 doctors chose Lucky Strike cigarettes. *ahem*

The pause for people-on-the-go… Coca-Cola 1941

The year is 1941 and the world is at war. Meanwhile, this fancy Press Agent in a smooth hat and suit is enjoying a tiny glass of coke. Perhaps he’s a giant.

Ad Text:


People on-the-go are never too busy to go to the soda fountain. It’s a place where the hurried are glad to take a minute the pause that refreshes with ice-cold Coca-Cola… that refreshing little stop that keeps you going. Try it. 5c

You taste its quality
Experience proves that nothing takes the place of quality. You taste the quality of ice-cold Coca-Cola. Again and again you enjoy the charm of its delicious taste… and its cool, clean after-sense of complete refreshment. Thirst asks nothing more.

Now we’re told that we’re not too busy to go for a soda. What does this ad make you think of? Would you buy this product? Would you date this guy in the hat?
