A generation ago, “Got Milk” ads were deemed highly successful on a number of fronts. Currently a new wave using the old theme has launched.

The original ads were based on “deprivation research” in which subjects were asked to go without milk for one week and report what happened. This led to campaigns focusing on how milk fits into daily living. Watch the CNN story and see how the thinking has changed.
