22 Amazing Old Milk Mustache Ads You Forgot About
Back in the ’90s and early 2000s, there was only one advertisement that really mattered, and that was the got milk? mustache ads. Yes, I’m talking about ads for milk, and don’t even lie — I know you remember them too. The got milk? ads were classic. They always featured the most famous celebrity of the moment, standing there with a glass of milk and a telltale milk mustache, next to a paragraph with an explanation of why they love milk so much that always referenced exactly what they were famous for. You could find the ads in all of your favorite magazines. I don’t know about you guys, but I definitely had a got milk? ad collection. In fact, if you go through my desk drawers, I guarantee you’ll find some of my favorites.
I don’t know why the got milk? ad campaign was such a big deal. It was literally a bunch of pictures of celebs drinking milk, of all things, but for some reason, people LOVED them. The ads were a huge hit, and I know I wasn’t the only person collecting them. Don’t even get me started on the moment we all realized that milk mustache was fake — it was devastating.
If you can believe it, the got milk? ad campaign actually just recently ended earlier this year. It was around for a while, but I’m assuming it stopped performing as well when celebs started shunning dairy for almond and cashew milk. Regular milk just stopped being cool.
Well, I don’t care how “cool” milk is or not — I still love these ads. Here are 22 amazing old milk mustache ads you probably forgot about. Which ones did you collect?
