Advertising. It’s something we are bombarded with every hour of every day. Yet, back in the day the writers of advert scripts seemed to have a little more about themselves
As a kid, Saturday morning’s, if I’d behaved the previous week, would mean a trip to the cinema if I was really lucky. At the cinema the B movie wouldn’t start until the adverts had run their time.
Mostly I remember an advert for a local indian takeaway, but the ad that really stands out in my memory was for the orange drink that came in a plastic carton and a separate straw. As the advert below suggests, it was very organgey.
