Help me identify this font.

The font in question (Top one, not bottom)

It looks a lot like Friz Quadrata, especially the A, but in the photo the P is even width throughout the stroke, and the W doesn't have a leftward serif on the middle peak.

You can check on "what the font". I tried. It looks like it is unique, especially made for the ad.

I think it is ITC Symbol of the medium or black weight with tight kerning applied and perhaps a slight stretch vertically on the black weight or faux-bold on the medium weight.

Have you tried What the Font?

If you can't figure it out from the main site, there are a lot of helpful people on the forum

Khazk is dead on, although I think the weight is normal bold. And it has been compressed horizontally.

It's not Copperplate 30 AB - the "G" is wrong.

Yup, definitely stretched vertically, I did try WTF and some of the other font survey apps beforehand, but without finding a match.
