We like the light-hearted approach towards the ‘Ides of March’ that has been imaginatively employed by advertising copywriters over the years.
We noticed a number of Ides-themed adverts, but especially liked this advert that herds together a forum-bound Caesar, some of his ‘colleagues’ and the soothsayer, in order to sell Scotch whisky.
Indeed, we think we’ll be posting more of these erudite adverts, as we stumble across them on our journeys through The Archive..
