Things Go Better with Coca Cola … and a Love Nest in 1951

The ever popular carbonated soft drink Coca Cola has been around since 1886.
Have you ever wondered how it has been delivered from the factory to your door, especially in 1951 ? Well, you probably haven’t given it a second thought but …

In 1909 it arrived in this …

In 1951 … it arrived in this.

And … Christmas 2012.

A 1951 advertisement for Coca Cola …

And finally … in 1951 Miss Marlyn Monroe was one of the stars in a comedy film called Love Nest.

A short scene from this film was used to make an advert promoting non other than the delicious tipple Coca Cola.

I think this is an early example of what we now refer to as product placement. Click here to view courtesy of YouTube.
