Vintage Guinness Ad Campaign: “Lovely Day for a Guinness”

"First featured in a 1935 ad from Gilroy’s zoo animal series, the toucan would become almost as synonymous with the Guinness brand as the harp on the label.

The toucan was initially intended to be a pelican, but was changed after poet Dorothy L. Sayers wrote: If he can say as you can, Guinness is Good for You, How grand to be a Toucan, Just think what Toucan do. “
