As gathered from the history of Nescafé, the inception occurred when Brazilian government approached Nestlé in 1930 for making quality coffee. 7 years later, Nescafé (Nestlé + Café) was born in Nestlé's Swiss laboratory and was introduced in Switzerland on the 1st of April 1938.
The ad is pretty simple and conveys the point very clearly! The tagline says, 'Nothing wakes you up as Nescafé'.

Pepsi Light was the lemon/cola (these were the two flavors available) flavored Pepsi sold in the 70s and 80s that was discontinued afterwards. Nowadays this is the name under which Diet Pepsi is distributed outside English speaking countries. Having known about the product, deciphering the ad would be pretty simple now; I guess. :-)
Guys, do drop in a few words about your opinion on the ads posted in adMad in the comments section.

This ad is released to promote Apollo’s tubeless tyres. The fact that a nail is hammered into the tyre and the tyre being unaffected by the nail indicates that there wouldn’t be any problems when something pierces through the tyre. But I feel it would be kind of hazy to people who don’t know what a tubeless tyre itself is. But then, probably the manufacture is targeting a different, educated, audience altogether.

Revive is the brand name of instant starch for clothes marketed by Marico, India. The product was launched in the year 1993.
The advertisement equates the stiffness of starched cloth to plastered hand so efficiently that people could relate to the ad and to the product quite easily. Great Work!
The tagline says, "Super Strong Starch".

I never thought that something like this would come from Microsoft’s kitty, until I got this ad! It’s simple, touching and right to the point. No wonder why it won the 2001 EPICA awards in Office Equipment’s category. BDDP & Fils France was the ad agency behind this advertisement.
On a different note, a few of Microsoft’s print ads released as part of one of their latest campaigns can be found here.

Halls is leading mentholated cough drops as well as breathe candies brand. It accounts for about 50% of international cough drop sales. The history of halls can be traced back to the 1930s in Britain, where it was manufactured by the Halls Brother Company founded in 1893. Currently the brand is marketed by the Cadbury-Adams Division of Cadbury-Schweppes. Halls flavors are usually suffixed by “lyptus” (mentho-lyptus, cherry-lyptus, orange-lyptus etc.) owing to its eucalyptus content.
The brand had the following conduit through mergers and acquisitions. Halls Brother Company > Warner-Lambert (1964) > Adams (1971) > Cadbury-Adams (2002).
Well as for the ad, I guess it is pretty much self-explanatory! :-)
