Malays drinking Guinness


Here’s a lovely old print advertisement from 1968.

The ad features a young Malay professional enjoying a pint of Guinness and some satay whilst his admiring and approving wife looks on.

The copy tells the reader that Guinness gives you energy when you are tired after work and that there are nutritional benefits to drinking Guinness. And the tagline reminds you that Guinness is good for you.

It’s a fairly innocent ad, typical of the period but what is most surprising is that it features Malays! How times have changed!
