Put On That Tux & Have A Martini

This doesn't feature any members of the Rat Pack or any of their pallies. I still thought it was very relevant to what this blog is all about. I love this ad from Seagram's. It definitely promotes a certain lifestyle. It's got a very classy look about it. I really like it. I hope you do too. I want a martini. Cheers!

Great ad! I can't help but use the old cliche, but women looked like women back then, and not girls going through their second teen years. And the guy looks cool, too, in a Neo-Edwardian sort of way.

I like these occasional departures. They're still related to the subject at hand, and Dino helped perpetuate this, so keep 'em coming, pally Keith!

Gin Martini - what is that sounds right up my booze alley, I'm gonna have to track some down now..

Check out the all ways vs. always in the ad. On the rocks or up? Olive or lemon?

Uber glamorous! A man in a tuxedo is just about the sexiest thing around!

Hope you are well Keith :-)

dino martin peters said...

Hey pallie Keith, very classic...how cool if it woulda been our Dino...does makes me wonder if the J&B pallies ever sought to have our Dino promote their liquid refreshment....

Keith said...

Hey C.K. Thanks. I'm glad you liked this ad. I totally agree with you. Women did look like women. Today so many look like young girls. The men were classy. They didn't look like a bunch of bums. I try to keep things on this blog related to that Rat Pack type of lifestyle in some form or fashion, even if it's not a pic of Dino, etc.

Keith said...

Hey Dave. I know what you mean. I wanna do some drinking this weekend. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Jim. I know what you mean. This ad has me wanting to try out some different drinks.

Keith said...

Hey Veronica. Thanks. I'm doing well. Glad you liked this pic. Yeah, I really like to see a man in a tux. It's very classy.

Keith said...

Hey pallie DMP. Thanks. It is a cool ad. It would have been neat to see Dino in such an ad. I've been trying to find ads featuring him. I thought this pic definitely had a cool vibe to it.

I love a man in a tux. It does make him look classic and handsome.

Keith said...

Thanks Phoebe. I think this is a really cool pic. I wish I got a chance to wear a tux more.

Couture Carrie said...

Love that ad, but can you make mine a vodka martoooooni?

xoxox,

Keith said...

Hey Carrie. Of course. Your wish is my desire. Cheers!

It kind reminds me of that old quote, "Let's get out of that wet suit and into a dry martini"

Salute!

dapper kid said...

Woah love it, they both look amazing! And it's true, nice to see a more mature couple, rather than young teens, they look all the more amazing in the black dress and tux :)

Tikimama said...

I do wish more men felt like you fellas here. Maybe we wouldn't have so many old jeans & t-shirts everywhere. I do like it when men dress like men and women like women! (Not meaning in a sexist way, but in a grown-up way, like said before!)

Gabbi said...

Such style... you're making me crave a martini! *bises*

Keith said...

Hey JB. Good one. I know what you mean. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Dapper. Thanks. Glad you liked this ad. It's great to see people older than 21 in an ad. Plus they are both dressed so classy. It makes me want to drink this more.

Keith said...

Hey Tikimama. Thanks for the comments. I love to see men and women dress up. We live in a culture where very few people dress up anymore. I'm tired of seeing people go around all the time in a t-shirt, shorts & flip flops.

Keith said...

Hey Gabbi. I hope you get that martini. Cheers!

Diana said...

the title of your post sounds like an awesome weekend!

Terence Sambo said...

cool Ad, i'm kinda feeling all these old ads u post up, makes me want to experience those times :o]

Keith said...

Thanks Diana. I hadn't thought of that, but it would make for a cool weekend.

Keith said...

Hey Terence. Thanks. That's great to hear. I know what you mean. I would love to experience this era.

Ben Varkentine said...

Could that be a young Bruce Campbell?

Keith said...

I'm not sure who it is.

C.K. Dexter Haven said...

Keith: Do you have a larger version of this Seagram's ad that you could email me? I'd sure appreciate it! My email is on my blog page.

Keith said...

Hey C.K. I just emailed you the bigger size of this ad. I guess you definitely liked this one. Cheers!
