90s adverts: Ribena, Tetley and Vitalite
A look back at a few of the characters from advertising campaigns gone by; I believe that all of these adverts are from the nineties. First off, the Ribena blackcurrants (I found surprisingly little coverage of these characters online, you know) introduce us to new, non-blackcurrant flavours.
Next we have the best-known of Wyatt-Cattaneo's creations: the Tetley Tea Folk. This advert is designed to promote the new development of circular tea bags by showing us how square tea bags merely lead to a harsh, angular dystopia.
Finally, the Vitalite Sun. This character originated in the eighties, but this must be a later advert - witness the flashier designs, not to mention a change in sunglasses.
