An early example of Rohan Advertising circa 1987

Do you remember this ad?

A series of Rohan Can advertisements ran from 1983 – 1987. The illustration above is the 1987 version. The ad ran in a number of the glossy Sunday magazines.

In a post on Rohantime Jon Boston talked about the history of the Rohan Can adverts

“The ad, by the way, was as simple as it was dramatic. To illustrate Rohan’s pack-small ability, it showed a tin of Coke, open one end, with a pair of Rohan Bags stuffed inside – and above it, the entertainingly ambiguous headline: Rohan Can. That was 25 years ago. And Rohan still does”
