Coca-Cola Advertisements in Nazi Germany in the 1930s
Coca-Cola was one of the three official beverage sponsors with a Getraenkedienst (beverage service) at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin. Athletic competition was a Nazi ideal and the Coca-Cola GmbH cashed in heavily on this infatuation by becoming one of the biggest sponsors of sports events, most notably the annual Deutschlandrundfahrt (National Bycicle Championships) and the Soccer Cup.
YOU VILL SING IN ZE PERRFECKT ARMONY or ELSE!!
My German is rusty.
“One people, one empire, one drink: Coke is it”
IMHO, based on the similarities between the political tyranny in Germany during the early thirties and the current U.S. political tyranny, guess we should be critical all their pictures/ads for current sporting events as well...
I believe you are correct sir.
I thought that Coke in German was spelled “Sinalco”.
‘Springtime for Hitler and Coca Cola,
Winter for Pepsi and France.’

how could they have not known what the future would be.
Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Führer!
One people, one nation, one Führer!
Simple, people are idiots. Do you think Hitler got that far because people are wise?
So it was part of the plan all along..........
Yup, I’m prey sure “Coke is it” wasn’t used until the 1960s.
‘Talk like a Butt-pirate day’ at the White Hut?
While a boycott by the United States was suggested due to Germany’s National Socialist regime, it was not implemented as the President of the United States Olympic Committee, Avery Brundage, felt that politics should be kept separate from sport. The other NOCs which threatened to boycott the Games for the same reason were the United Kingdom, France, Sweden, Czechoslovakia and the Netherlands. An alternative People’s Olympiad was planned to take place in Barcelona, Spain, but was cancelled at the last moment following the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War after the athletes had already begun to arrive. The civil war also meant that Spain’s NOC did not compete at the 1936 Games. While no NOCs ended up boycotting the Games, a multinational Jewish-led boycott of the Games took place, with individual athletes refusing to take part.
The men’s basketball team won the gold medal.
So I forgive the translation.
Yeah, I was very impressed with the opening episodes of WINDS OF WAR because of the depiction of the clueless, if not innocent, Thirties. A lot of people did a lot of scrambling after that. "British philosophy" for example. I forget what it was called, but they had some kind of fascist thing going. I came across that one by accident. Of course, Charles Lindbergh got caught out, but most of them ducked out of the way. Everything changed in an instant.
My dad was in Europe just after high school by himself traveling - must have been just as Hitler was gaining power - I’m guessing around 1935?
He was in Denmark I think at a youth hostel and met up with a German boy and in conversation asked about this Hitler fellow. The German hushed him and looked around and said it was not safe to talk about him.
I know the pirate costume is just a coincidence but gee, how fitting.
The photo is kind of haunting to those of us living through this.
“Coke is it” was introduced in the early 1980s. Bill Cosby was their spokesman and this slogan was everywhere.
That is well done, subtle and clean (lean).
One, Two, Three...
I just remembered something that fits on this thread.
I have an old Life magazine full page ad for an engine oil brand dated a month before the Hindenburg disaster, I guess you can figure out what the full page image and sales pitch was bragging about.
shoulda known he was gonna turn out queer. he dressed up as a gay pirate.
Coke is it.
“One, Two, Three”
Geez, that reminded me of Lilo Pulver, the Coke executive’s secretary! I had such a crush on her then, especially when she gave up her dress to rescue the East German.
Someone mentioned “Sinalco”. I recall if you asked for a “Spetzi” you got Coke with lemon added.
BTW I think the ad shown is legit.
That’s what I thought, too. ‘Coke is it’ wasn’t a slogan until the past few decades. Also, the eagle at the angle looked too hip. I don’t doubt Coke was there selling their elixer but I doubt that was a genuine ad. IMBW . . .
Not that American companies didn’t make money off the Nazis but advertising from that era had a certain feel.
LOOK MOM!! A Somali Pirate!!
Yeah, looks that way.
It appears FR’s collective BS Detector is on the ‘fritz.’
There are other "German" Coca-Cola "ads" at the jump but this is the only image with a swastika.
The Coca-Cola logo/font is very rough. The copyright/trademark notice after it is blurred beyond recognition (and too large for the font on that poster).
The bottom font looks like a Swiss/Helvetica font which I though was more of a post-war European thing.
The whole design looks "off" (the olympic rings in that usage seem more of a post-70s thing).
I don't know if Coca-Cola got political for socialists in the 1930s but I do know that Pepsi Cola did in the 2000s.
That is probably the first early pic from Hawaii that doesn’t appear to be ‘shopped ,, the flash shadows and contrast washout appear correct ,, the background looks correct with the right type grass and large plumeria plants... Halloween at age 6/7?? Stanley Ann doesn’t appear to be wearing a wedding ring...
