The first ever Guinness beer TV commercial
On World Television Day 2015, we shared our oldest television commercial. responsibly. The first ever Guinness beer TV commercial was broadcast on 22 September 1955 – with the launch of ITV in the UK. It was the first ever evening any advertising appeared on television in the UK. Popular comedian Charlie Naughton grappled valiantly with the sea lion to recreate one of the earlier Gilroy posters. This ad contains historical product claims that are not now endorsed by Guinness.
