Branston Pickle: Advertising Agency
15 seconds isn't long, you've got to say Crosse and you've got to say Blackwell, and you've got to say Branston Pickle!
Necessity is the mother of invention. The advertising agency’s problem of fitting a distinctive commercial message for Crosse & Blackwell Branston Pickle into 15 seconds of screen time becomes the solution. Britain’s leading animation company Halas & Batchelor were brought on board to turn a clever idea into this small but perfectly formed ad from the early years of commercial television in Britain.
