Throwback Thursday Sean Connery for Jim Beam

It is Throwback Thursday at Elarbee Media, and true to form, we are featuring a vintage print ad. We pick ads from the past that we rate as timeless or that are extremely timely to a period and no longer have relevance, but are very amusing. Today we are feeling timeless.

Today, we selected one of our favorite celebrity endorsements to highlight. Sean Connery for Jim Beam. This ad hits on all levels and if we put Sean Connery's updated photo with a beard in the same ad today it would sell many fifths during the holiday season.

Simple and clean. Image-heavy with limited copy. Definitely aspirational.
