"Nothing is impossible for people who drink Dr Pepper!

It is said that people who drink Dr Pepper can do anything: dance till dawn, have dimples when they smile, make bushels of money.

And we have a laboratory full of wealthy, dimpled dancers to prove it!

Obviously, Dr Pepper is no dull, run-of-the-mill soft drink. It tastes brighter. And it's really much more than refreshing: it's the real pepper-upper active folks need to keep up with the busy lives they lead.

Now that Dr Pepper is available almost everywhere, there's no reason for anyone to fail at anything! Have a frosty bottle of Dr Pepper and face the world with a conquering heart.

Ha-Ha? We try to make Dr Pepper ads funny (more or less) so you'll enjoy reading them. But we're serious about wanting you to try a carton or two. Dr Pepper is as good as we say it is. But please don't take our word for it. Buy some, instead, today."

To Whom It May Concern:
I’m trying to find a Dr. Pepper photo ad from the early 1940’s. It is of a boy wearing an oversized football uniform. My interest in this ad is two fold; the photographer of the ad, Charles Peterson, is my grandfather; and the boy model, Don Peterson, is my father. Would you know whom I may speak with to track down this ad. The only information I have is what I provided already. Any guidance would be a great help in my endeavor.
