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".
Graeme Bignell: My Daddy works for Underberg
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
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
JeriCurl: holy crap
Jeff Patrician: this stuff is a miracle. i swear by it
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? ;)
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.
