TUMS Antacid - "For Acid Indigestion and Heartburn" (Commercial, 1965)

Views: 1670


Here's a vintage commercial for TUMS antacid, with an animated man's acid indigestion and heartburn represented visually by such images as volcanic eruptions, lightning strikes, a distorted shot of midtown Manhattan from atop the Empire State Building (looking north towards West 42nd Street and 5th Avenue), stop-motion animation of dinosaurs fighting, building explosions, high tides, war zones and ships hit by turbulent seas - and after he takes a Tums, his relief is visually represented by such images as birds resting in the grass, a leisurely rowboat ride, a cow grazing, a flower blooming in fast motion, and an ocean at sunset.

Ending voiceover by ??

"Work fast, cost less, very effective."

This aired on local Chicago TV early Friday, March 5th 1965.
