"I'd Like To Buy The World A Coke"
We get asked from time to time about the availability of old advertising, ads in magazines, TV and so on. One great site with a lot of historic advertising in a variety of formats is at this Library of Congress page. In addition to advertising, there are links to the historic newspaper collections and other good primary document resources. If you're old enough, you may remember this ad that they have, the classic 1971 "I'd Like To Buy The World A Coke" TV ad, which featured an international group of singers on a hill top in Italy.
