I Need A Kronos Gyros Woman Poster from the 1970s/80s

 

Michael Palan started this petition to Kronos Foods Corp

Like most humans who have the ability to eat food, I love gyros.  Who doesn’t!  I always have loved gyros. Haven’t you?

As a child of the late 1970s and early 80s, I grew up in the prime time of gyros rise to becoming America’s favorite Mediterranean meat. And the leader of making gyros a staple in the states was Kronos Food Corp.

Not only did they have the meats that could not be beat, but they also happened to be geniuses at marketing and advertising.  We’re not talking Super Bowl ads here, but simple, yet beautiful posters featuring a lovely American woman holding what at the time was mostly a foreign object – gyros!

This woman was the siren call to gyros.  She was like something out of a dream.  And I have never forgotten about her.  Sure, the woman has been replaced by other fine ladies over the years, but there is only ONE original gyros poster woman.

So what do I want?  I want one of those original posters.  I’d even take a re-print of one.  Heck, I’d take 5 million of them in any form.  They are works of art.  They should hang in the Louvre AND the Smithsonian.  But my aims aren’t that high.  I just want one measly poster to hang in my home.  I want the gyros woman and her gyros to smile upon me, in the place I live.  This has been my mission for as long as I can remember, and I haven’t had any luck accomplishing this dream of dreams.  Kronos hasn’t helped.  eBay hasn’t either.  Neither has any place that serves gyros and happens to have an old beat up version of the poster.

Please, I need your help.  Let me have this gyros woman poster.  It’s all I ever wanted (yes, I want it even more than I want ABBA, Led Zep and the Talking Heads to reunite!).  The dream cannot die.

SIGN MY PETITION, PLEASE!!!!!!!
