2012 Recommended Anthropomorphics List needs your help
There has been a recommendation of this one-minute TV commercial from Hong Kong, for the Mannings Plus pharmacy chain. It was first posted on YouTube on January 3; we presume it first appeared on TV this year.
The Recommended Anthropomorphics List tries to give credit to not only the sponsor of recommended TV commercials, but also the advertising agency that produced the commercial and, if possible, the ad agency’s director of the commercial. In this case, all the information is in Cantonese, which we cannot read.
We have asked the recommender and on YouTube, but we do not have a reply yet. Can anyone help? Are there any credits here for who made the commercial?
We do know what it is about. A housecat’s young mistress is sick and he fears that she is dying. Looking in a Chinese medical book, he learns about the legendary snow lotus miracle herb, said to cure any ailment, which only grows in high mountains. After searching throughout the world (taking time out for a tongue-bath), he finds the lotus on a mountaintop, but it has wilted.
Returning dejectedly, he discovers that his neighborhood Mannings Plus pharmacy had it all along. He brings the medicine home to find the girl’s bed empty and thinks she has died, but she has already been cured by the medicine.
By the way, yes, anthropomorphic TV commercials can be recommended in the Dramatic Short Work category.
