Here’s a treasure I found over at You Tube. A vintage Coke infomercial that showcases Coca Cola’s presence in Philippine culture.
This 20-minute video is from 1955 and is entitled Pearl of the Orient. Watching this film made me remember all the field trips to the Coca Cola plants I took in elementary school.
The actual infomercial starts at the 2:30 mark. If you don’t like to watch the process of making Coke, you can likewise skip ahead to the 14 minute mark and you’ll see how the Philippines was and looked like in the 1950’s.
I hope you enjoy watching this video as much as I did. Cheers!
