Summary

Shippam's advertisement using black and white animation and classical arias features singing chickens, shrimp, and fish. The film opens with three spotlight beams which come together, to form the logo as it appears on the labels of the Shippam glass jars.

Description

This musical animation features singing and dancing chickens, shrimp, salmon and a chorus of Shippam's paste pots. They sing versions of operatic arias from Mozart's Marriage of Figaro, Rossini's Barber of Seville and the Blue Danube Waltz by Johann Strauss - using the tunes to insist that 'you will enjoy Shippam's pastes for your tea'.
