From the Paper:

"During the great depression, Coca-Cola in the year 1929 defied the bleak condition of the times with its advertisement campaign that presented an idyllic America that inspired the viewers despite the somber times. The advertisement campaign catapulted the sales of Coke by twice as much as the previous year. Then in 1956 came the Clairol Hair color advertisement campaign with the slogan "Does she.. or doesn't she?" that possibly intrigued viewers and contributed to its success. Volkswagen automobile, in 1959, sped off to the finish line like an underdog hero with the concept "Think small" for its advertisement campaign along with its smart "We pluck the lemons, you get the plums" slogan."
