VINTAGE 1955 OVALTINE COMMERCIAL - ATHLETE FLORENCE CHADWICK
Thursday, December 06, 2012
The first woman to swim the English Channel felt the need to promote
OVALTINE, a vitamin (and sugar) enriched chocolate flavored additive,
which was designed for the children of the 1950's to put in their milk.
Just like Mary Poppins says "A SPOONFUL OF SUGAR MAKES THE MEDICINE GO
DOWN", which would mean that it helps in process of getting the BRATS to
drink their milk.
Captain Midnight introduces two impressionable kids into the joy of drinking Ovaltine, and he also introduces them to a World-Class athlete, who happens to be promoting the same milk additive - OVALTINE.
