CultureHISTORY: “I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing” - Coca-Cola Commercial (1971)

An indelible TV commercial from the early 70s, this ad became one of the most famous of the decade. It signaled that after the post-60s fatigue, the decade was *finally* over and it was time to make peace. But that peace would also involve a new generation more inclusive than the last and corporate advertising took notice. A great commercial and a fine pop culture time capsule. ‪#‎Saturday70s‬
