A Collection a Day #51 – Advertising icons, originally uploaded by Cool and Collected.
Advertising Age magazine put together a list of the top ten advertising icons of all time. The Green Giant clocked in at number three and the Pillsbury Doughboy earned the number six slot. I really don’t think the Marlboro Man deserves the top spot and Elsie the Cow sure doesn’t belong on the list, but you know what they say about opinions…
These lovable hunks of vinyl were used to promote the various brands back in the 70’s. (The Planters peanut bank is hard plastic.) The Bob’s Big Boy and the Mr. Fleet are banks. These stand around 10″ tall, so they make a great statement on the shelf.
I have collected so many different things that I thought it would be fun to try and photograph a collection a day and see how far I can get.
