LEAD- Fruit Roll Ups (1990) - Meteor
Holy smokes! I can’t thank this anon enough for finding this. Look at the tape. Look at how recent it is. It was impossible to find this unless you knew to look for it. So.. Our hero! ;u; Yet this’s only the beginning. Anyone else able to find higher quality copies of this ad? Not sure if this’s a higher quality copy of the ad.
Let’s review what happens. The kids confuse Rolluppo for a meteor as he comes rocketing in. The kids are in suspense as he rolls like a windowblind, only to flatten when bursting forth with his product. THAT’s when they get happy.
The first girl is a figure 8, I believe. She’s soon pulled to the side, flattened, and twists around the other two boys she was with as she drifts down gently. Wow. Now I know why I like this ad. :X <3
The next one shown is a girl who spins up into the air. (This’s where the video being low-Q is noticable :( )..
After that, an awesome scene with a nerd boy who eats a peeled-out car piece, and is pulled down into a revving car shape. Yes, shape. You see, he doesn’t turn into like, a red car or something. His body’s form is bent to the shape of the chassis! And then he rockets off.
I can see why I love this ad from the fadedness of the video. Spectacular body control and form play. 9u9 <3
But yes! Please! Be on the hunt for this as well! :) <3 Anyone else remember it now?
