Imperial beer can....Just an artist rendition???

Post by keithker » Mon Oct 07, 2019 5:14 pm

So while looking into Imperial beer being sold in St Louis I happened across this ad. Is this just a poor artist rendition "Hey Publisher....we're going to be selling Imperial beer here soon and here is a quick sketch to get it in the paper".

The right image was put in the paper a week later....

The word "Imperial" is not skewed/curved like the rest of the text.

Shouldn't it read 'america's second finest?'
Better to drive 950 miles and kick asz than go a thousand miles and get nothing.
