Hooray for the Red, White and Blue!

The colors belong to the United States, red for courage, white for peace and blue for freedom. All across America they will be worn and flown on Independence Day, the 4th of July. The “smile” belongs to Jantzen and the legendary ad campaign and slogan that began in 1960 and continued for a decade. So let the fireworks begin, the marching bands march and the “star spangled banner” fly. There is no better way to celebrate than with “a smile and a Jantzen”.
