Celebrate the Fourth of July With Vintage Patriotic Ads
1:45 pm, July 4th | by Colette McIntyre
You’re probably on your way to having an incredibly modern Fourth of July: you’re Instagram-ing the hot dogs on the grill, your BBQ is listed on Facebook, your friend is tweeting about your selection of sparklers, and you can’t wait to turn the firework show into a Vine. But doesn’t just a tiny part of you wish that you could party like they did on Independence Days of yore: pop a Jello sculpture out of its mold, wave a flag as the neighborhood parade trots by, pop a beer open for Uncle Sam? Satisfy your hankering for Americana before you return to your very 21st century Fourth by tying a red, white and blue kerchief around your head and clicking through these vintage patriotic ads!
