Men Who Plan Beyond Tomorrow

We're only missing the usher's uniform

In the 1940s, long before Dos Equis' The Most Interesting Man in the World, Seagrams ran an advertising series around Men Who Plan Beyond Tomorrow. Instead of looking backwards the ads looked towards the future. While many of their futures, the wonders of atomic farming for example, were wrong in an amusingly goofy sort of a way, many of their guesses were pretty good.

From the Flickr stream MWPBT! where there are more examples from the ad campaign.

Are those pajamas he's wearing?
The inverse of what a convenience store became
They only missed the number of different channels
Not exactly how pizzas came to be delivered
