Question: Which product was advertised in the first television commercial in 1941?
Coffee Winston Cigarettes
Kellogg’s Corn Flakes
The answer is: Bulova Watches
Answer: The first official paid television advertisement was broadcast in the United States on July 1, 1941 over New York station WNBT (now WNBC) before a baseball game between the Brooklyn Dodgers and Philadelphia Phillies. Before the game began, TV viewers saw a 10-second advertisement for Bulova clocks and watches. The ad showed a clock and a map of the United States, with a voice-over that says, “America runs on Bulova time”. Bulova paid $9 to run the spot, that was seen by about 4,000 people in New York.
