With Christmas just a few days away, I thought I would share this ad from the past. This ad for Alka Seltzer appeared in a November 1979 issue of Sports Illustrated. It is quite interesting to see how they tried to peddle a product like Alka Seltzer back then. The parody of Twas The Night Before Christmas is pretty clever.┬áThe poetry portion of this is pretty well done. I’m not so sure the Santa with the sleigh and reindeer was necessary, but it does illustrate Christmas.
