Perrier's anniversary

You probably all know Perrier water, the sparkling water that costs the price of a cocktail, but sounds soooo French ;-) to order at a café. Well it's currently celebrating its 150th anniversary and, to celebrate, they are running a huge ad campaign on TV and in the streets. They also have a Warhol limited edition that you can see in the poster that I photographed in the 13th arrondissement. The nice part, for a French at least is that we also get to see again all the fabulous Movie theater and TV ads that they have been running for the last 30 to 40 years. Including this one from 1976, that I remember having seen live before it was banned for being a little too... graphic!


  1. I have never seen the 1976 add. Very cleaver and funny!

  2. I'll bet that ad was made by a man. :~} And I'm with Stefan—tap water, please.

  3. Ah,la main! Nice subliminal ad, a little too graphic...even for these days! Ü

    1. Yes it's hard to think it was originally run in 1976!

  4. Anniversary Perrier bottles are on the store shelves in Florida - I like the new look and do enjoy 'my' Perrier!
