Here is a quick post for a Friday afternoon. I haven't even had a chance to take my own photographs of this jewel, but I need to get it on the site, so here we go swiping the seller's Ebay pics:
This amazing piece is a store display poster, measuring the unusual size of 13 x 28 inches. This is from the fondly-remembered Dr. Pepper ad campaign during the time of GODZILLA 1985. If you aren't familiar with the TV ads from the time (I believe there are two, with a cinema version of one that is slightly longer), they are on YouTube! Check them out; you won't be sorry!
|Love, American style.|
Even stranger, a new character was created for the ads--which, you have to believe, took Toho approval--which was a girl Godzilla called only "Newzilla." Far as I know, she hasn't been heard from since [insert your own jokes about chemicals in diet soda here].
