GreeenBaron: Wow, I guess I seriously need some motherfreakin' Underberg.
Abomin Ator: this stuff taste like crap
falkoz: @lovenow Yeah, old Question, but it says "Underberg - bans indisposition and settles you down. Daily Underberg and you feel fine".
Quadrophenia: My Daddy works for Underberg
Felicia D'Ambrosio: @fuseji Yes.
JeriCurl: holy crap
Jeff Patrician: this stuff is a miracle. i swear by it
zubby: That's really beautiful, in a surreal way. I could watch it all day!
asentenceearly: That's what happens when you wash down peyote-topped pizza with absinthe while watching the Night On Bald Mountain segment of Fantasia.
Best part is the army of fiddle-playing skeletons
robcat2075: And after the check from his clients cleared, he said "there's one born every minute".
lovenow: Yeah,Europe has a tradition of herbal formulas in thier liquers and as digestive aids(it seems sometimes both are one and the same). I think you can get swedish bitters (non-alchoholic)in US health stores; in Hungary, where I am now, they have something like Jaegemeister, except much stronger tasting, "Unicum". Been produced since the mid 19th century I think. Kind of funny to see the applyication of modern marketing to re-popularize it with younger people as a party drink.
RatPfink66: Wikipedia says the paper wrapped bottle came in in 1946 when they began making Underberg again after WW2. I'd put the date of this at late '40s-early '50s.
Anybody ever have Underberg? It's stomach bitters (Jaegermeister is similar). Nasty tasting alcoholic stuff, good for heartburn/indigestion after a meal. At Xmas time little chocolates are sold filled with it and other liqueurs.
baroughter: well... it was surely done no later than the 60s.
lovenow: Yeah, Fischerkoesen b 1896 d 1973 was a commercial animator. There's stuff on the web about him. Not sure when this film would have been made, but it's neat to see a wierd sense of humor at work.
lovenow: Kind of fascinating. But it can't possibly be recent. Does anyone have any idea of the vintage, or, what is being said?
