This is a gloriously silly film from Clemenger BBDO Melbourne for Tetley Tea for Tetley Tea, made by Tata Global Beverages these days, it seems (is there anything these guys don’t do? Steel, cars, IT etc etc).
And more evidence that, unlike in the UK, good agencies around the world are still using actors (and humour) in commercials to splendid effect.
The copywriter was Nick Kelly and the art director Nick Buckingham. It was directed by Brian Aldrich for Furlined.
