The World's First Ever TV Ad
The first ever ad was for Bulova watches in 1941. It cost a whopping $9 (just $4 dollars more than this reconstruction cost). I found the film here on YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Vckzi1DMFY But there wasn't any voiceover for it. So I went to http://fiverr.com and hired the wonderful Dawg (http://fiverr.com/abcdawg) to recreate what many documenters say was there. Five minutes of Final Cut tinkering later and - tada - here we are. I recreated the ad for a lecture I was doing at http://schoolcommunicationarts.com/ but thought I may as well put it up here for any other advertising geeks to see. Enjoy.
