Origin(s) of Bianchi Celeste, and more, Part II
If you read the comments in yesterday's entry about the origins of Bianchi celeste you would have discovered that the "Ugly Truth" Bianchi ad was a spoof by prollyisnotprobably.
Today, Rory, who writes an excellent blog, posted a scan (above) of the original Bianchi ad from 1984 in which Bianchi asked if they should keep celeste, color #227, or change it. Rory also provides another version of the origin of celeste and a few a couple of more Bianchi ad scans.
