  1. Is it too late to sponsor the Spanish civil war?

  2. The Banana Wars, brought to you in part by the United Fruit Company. At United Fruit, bringing you the finest quality South American produce is not just a job; it’s an occupation.

  3. Also…

    The Crimean War, sponsored by the Shelby Electric Company and Mazda Lamp, bringing the charge for YOUR light brigade.

    The Kashmir Revolt, brought to you by your friends at the National Cotton Counsel.

    The Hundred Years’ War, a production of the Lord Chamberlain’s Men.

    The French Revolution, underwritten by the Pike Manufacturers Guild.

    And, of course, the War of Northern Aggression, a creation of the Sons of Confederate Veterans and the United Daughters of the Confederacy.

  4. Frigidaire had to scramble in ’89 when their their 40 year old ad campaign centered around their sponsorship of the Cold War suddenly fell apart.
