Oreo is celebrating its 100th birthday. On their Facebook page, they’ve got a really smart and clever campaign going on, tracing current events of their 100 year history.
Sure, their PRIDE multi-color Oreo—beloved by many gay rights supporters, but also causing outrage and protests—is the image making the headlines, but this whole Facebook campaign is just really crisp. I love it.
Other historical reference Oreo images I didn’t have space to include here include “Soccer takes the world stage” (1930,) “Invention of the Yo-Yo” (1928,) “First steps on the moon” (1969,) “Millenium Bug*” (2000,) and “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves on Broadway” (1912,) “Baby Boom” (1946,) and “First 3D Movie” (1952.)
[*This image is just an Oreo. Nothing happened. Get it? It took me like 20 minutes.]
