LIFE Magazine was where ad execs made a play for new customers. This 1962 ad shows an interesting attempt by Smirnoff Vodka to present itself as an alternative to whisky. Upon order, this advertisement will be painstakingly extracted from the original edition in which it appears and carefully framed and packaged for delivery.
When vodka first arrived in the USA, it was marketed as "the white whisky" in an attempt to entice customers to try this famous foreign firewater. In this ad, Smirnoff shows a famed Hollywood cowboy actor cozying up to the Western bar for a satisfying drink from Russian. Good try, Smirnoff!
This ad will look amazing in any home, an office, dormitory -- or restaurant or bar! Since the ad is the original from an authentic and rare LIFE Magazine, you can rest assured of its unique value! This is a perfect birthday, holiday, Father’s Day or Mother’s Day gift! Personalize this gift by including a certificate of authenticity with your special message.
The LIFE Magazine ad itself measures approximately 10.5″ x 13.5″ and it surrounded by a white professional framing mat cut to this ad’s specifications. The total area of the advertisement and the mat measures 15.75” x 19.7” and looks fantastic. The handsome and contemporary dark-brown frame itself is a high-quality medium-density fiberboard (MDF) with shatterproof plexiglass.
As an ad taken from an original magazine from the stated date, the ad may show signs of aging. As a collector’s item, all sales are final and returns are not accepted.
