When browsing through hundred-year-old magazines I occasionally come across advertisements that make little sense. Today was one of those days. This advertisement for Hormel’s Dairy Brand Bacon left me with more questions than answers.
- Why is a pork product called “Dairy Brand”?
- What is the food the woman in the ad is holding, and does it contain bacon?
- Did this advertisement increase sales? . . . or did it totally flop?
