Eighties/nineties adverts: Boots and Babycham
A couple more adverts. Here's an early 90s Boots advert featuring Raymond Briggs' interpretation of Father Christmas.
Next, this Babycham commercial. I debated with myself whether it was worth posting, given the poor quality of the print I own, but since the entire thing is bathed in a 1980s neon glow I have to wonder whether it ever looked any cleaner.
The deer from the Babycham logo comes to life in the middle of a party, creates a romantic companion for the moon, and then conjures up a flying saucer so that a bunch of aliens can join the party. At the end, the deer flies off into space while a woman with a high-pitched voice tells us that nothing sparkles, nothing sparkles, nothing sparkles like a Babycham.
