If you have been to a traditional Danish pub (the bodega) it is very likely you came across this fabulous Tuborg advertisement by Storm P.
The image shows four vagabonds standing in some kind of a field. The vagabond to the left asks:
"Pericles, can you tell me when a Tuborg tastes best?"
The vagabond in the middle answers with confidence:
It seems like the rest of the vagabonds enjoys this jolly good joke. The rest of the interpretation of the ad is up to you...
Storm P. (1882-1949) was a Danish cartoonist, writer, animator, illustrator, painter and humorist. He is known almost exclusively by his pen name Storm P. but his real name was Robert Storm Petersen.
Storm P. left about 60,000 drawings and 100 paintings of varied quality. His drawings are very often illustrated jokes, or series of a theme besides artist sketches. Among his favorite themes are the vagabonds – who are portrayed as grotesquely dressed-up petty philosophers – and the circus milieu that he regarded with much warmth.
He is perhaps best known for his Storm P machines, comic drawings of machines that perform very simple tasks through an unnecessarily complex and usually humorous series of actions. Other cartoonists who are known for similar machine drawings are Rube Goldberg and Heath Robinson. Besides that, he illustrated many books, often written by congenial authors – Mark Twain, Jerome K. Jerome and G. K. Chesterton, among others.
This poster is the perfect decor the private stylish minibar or simply a place which needs some colors and a humorous message.
Please note: The poster was first published in 1950 with colors but Storm P. made the poster in 1943.
