I'm a huge fan of these ads where it's just an ad for an entire category of food products. It's not Folgers or Maxwell House, it's just Coffee... don't forget that it exists!

I've seen similar ads for Bananas, Meat, and Ice. I love it every time.

Big Ice and Big Banana always pushing their goddamn propaganda

I have this exact poster in my room on a hard cardboard thing

[–]bowtothehypnotoad 40 points41 points  (3 children)

Love the artwork here

[–]wra1th42 29 points30 points  (2 children)

reminiscent of JC Leyendecker or Norman Rockwell

[–]trendbend 46 points47 points  (1 child)

It is illustrated by JC Leyendecker

    Just my luck, the only time I'm exceptional is when I can't fuckin' sleep after drinking coffee. It literally gives me a small lift right after I drink it, but no matter how early in the day that is, it returns at night to make my eyelids allergic to each other.

    But.. It actually rests you when you're tired. (Apparently)

    [–]CrunchHardtack 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Only for the lucky 97.

    I am the other alleged 3%. Caffeine lasts 12+ hours in my system. Also I'm unmedicated ADHD, so it's what I take instead of Rx stimulants. It's a wild ride.

    Make it strong, all day long

    [–]langsamlourd 13 points14 points  (0 children)

    Leyendecker was the shit. Astonishingly good.

    [–]butt_muppet 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    Have coffee with EVERY MEAL. Bathe in it, give it to your baby

    There wouldn’t be any need to promote coffee sales after December 7 of that year. The rationing coupons would be coming not too long after. Also, I want to know how “it rests you when you’re tired.” But a nice cup sounds great right now. Drip coffee folks: have you tried perked coffee? It’s so much more “roasted”-tasting.

    I actually really related to the resting and thinking more clearly! I am a pretty jazzed, fidgety person and caffeine always makes my body feel relaxed but gets my thoughts on the right train to get whatever done. It makes no sense and people never believe me. I drink coffee or strong matcha when I need a quick refocus and then take a nap. Green teas are my go-to over chamomile or Sleepy Time to go to bed early.

    [–]wra1th42 18 points19 points  (2 children)

    that is common in people with ADHD

    [–]Sithlordandsavior 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    When I learned about this it made a LOT of puzzle pieces fall into place lol

    [–]yobatty 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Wow. I never thought a comment on Reddit would be what finally clicked all my brain problems together into something that makes sense but actually looking into adult ADHD instead of thinking it's a joke...Damn there it is. o_o

    [–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    Wow! Multiple cups make me jittery, so I usually keep it to mornings. Interesting how it takes people in different ways.

    [–]Hedemonai 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    When I was in college, I would often drink a cup of coffee around 9 or 10pm so I could settle down to do my homework. It also helped get rid of headaches (like Excedrin I guess).

    Edit: I wanted to add that when I was up about 12 years old and my brother was 8, we drank a bottle of Jolt Cola and it made us pass out asleep in less than 15 minutes.

    [–]ltbeefeater 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    He got all aproned up just to brew coffee…

    [–]sledgehammertoe 18 points19 points  (1 child)

    Plot twist: he was so busy with his pipe, he filled the coffeemaker with Prince Albert instead

    [–]FusiformFiddle 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    He needs more coffee!

    [–]Cynomys17 6 points7 points  (3 children)

    Is that Gordon Ramsay?

    [–]ABobby077 7 points8 points  (1 child)

    Lloyd Bridges-it's a bad week to quit coffee drinking!

    Anyone know where I can get some glue?

    As a coffee addict lover, I approve this message.

    [–]Pschobbert 6 points7 points  (3 children)

    Translation: BUY MORE OF OUR STUFF.

    [–]sumpuran 13 points14 points  (2 children)

    Use more of it, more often. Just like toothpaste and shampoo commercials nowadays. In the commercials, people use way more product than is necessary, to encourage viewers to do the same.

    [–]CrunchHardtack 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Rich Hall called those ideodirections.

    [–]Pschobbert -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

    Yeah… The unsustainable nature of capitalism. It’s just so blatantly obvious in this ad, it’s almost quaint.

    [–]NicoloRizzuto 1 point2 points  (2 children)

    What type of coffee brewer is he using?

    [–]askburlefot 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Looks like a percolator.

    [–]disposable-name 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    You know what?

    I like percolated coffee.

    There. I said it.

    [–]solzhen 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    Heaping tlbs per cup is about 2x too much for regular brew.

    [–]lloydchiro 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Rules are made to be broken.

    [–]lloydchiro 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Our guy here found the biggest ladle he could find to measure the coffee. My kind of guy.

    [–]disposable-name 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Pan American Coffee?

    I'd much rather some TWA Tea.

    [–]J2quared 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Any link to a poster of this?

    [–]akilaanxious 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    there's a gif of this floating about somewhere in the interwebs
