LoveTHYconan: i'll buy whatever they're selling, that was the best commercial i've ever
Felicia D'Ambrosio: @fuseji Yes.
hase artmov: the ad is from 1955 - I found this in a book about German Animation Film
macNjulia: Anyone ever noticed the uncanny similarity to Alfred Hitchock's 'Vertigo'?
... Interestingly enough, 'Vertigo' was produced in 1958 and is hence is
younger than this great commercial from 1955 ... Where did you learn this,
Mr Hitchrooster? ... Cheers, Julia
riisitauti: WTF :D
baroughter: well... it was surely done no later than the 60s.
Abomin Ator: this stuff taste like crap
GIESSELINK: Hey, I'll start my new job tomorrow, I'm supposed to design the graphic to
launch Underberg's bitters into Shanghai alcoholics market. It seems you
guys know a lot about this, any suggestion? ;)
lovenow: Kind of fascinating. But it can't possibly be recent. Does anyone have any
idea of the vintage, or, what is being said?
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.
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.
Jeff Patrician: this stuff is a miracle. i swear by it
robcat2075: And after the check from his clients cleared, he said "there's one born
Graeme Bignell: My Daddy works for Underberg
falkoz: @lovenow Yeah, old Question, but it says "Underberg - bans indisposition
and settles you down. Daily Underberg and you feel fine".
zubby: That's really beautiful, in a surreal way. I could watch it all day!
macNjulia: This cinema commercial was from the mid-1950s (see hair and nightgown of
lady ... The voice over was done by the upcoming actor Hans Clarin (see
imdb) ... He did lots of commercials at the time, including 'Die Beine von
Dolores', another Fischerkoesen commercial animation (here under 'stockings
advert') ... The audio commentary translates into: "Underberg, ends
indigestion and soothes ... (Take) Underberg daily, and you'll be feeling
swell!" ... Cheers, Julia
GreeenBaron: Wow, I guess I seriously need some motherfreakin' Underberg.
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.
JeriCurl: holy crap
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 Y/N?
