The exhibition we saw in the exchange building I showed you yesterday, was about 100 years of advertisement and about the celebrities who are often used to recommend a product. It was fun to see all those sporters, movie-stars, tv-broadcasters recommend some strange products as cigarettes and soups.
In the early days before WWII we hardly had any celebrities here, there was no television yet, only magazins. The famous Canadian Dionne quintuplet from 1934 were even here used in advertisements for soap and oatmeal.
Laurel and Hardy for dutch chocolate in 1935.
After WWII the American movie- and music-stars were very popular as Audrey Hepburn, Danny Kaye, Doris Day and Ronald Reagan for toothpaste, soap and foundation.
Here some dutch movie-stars Willeke van Ammelrooy and Monique van der Ven, who are now in their eldery ages already.
A dutch singer Willeke Alberti with some "tv-sausages".
Even the Royal family have their portraits on cookie-boxes, chocolate sprinkles and mint.
