In 1916 Coca-Cola established their distinctively contoured "hobble skirt" bottle which became one of Coca Cola's trademark and contributed to the success of their already flourishing campaign. In 1925 the first 4-colour billboard advertisement appeared, featuring a uniformed "Ritz Bay" carrying a tray of frosted Coke, with the headline "5,000,000 drinks a day."
