This quirky advertisement from 1968 extols the benefits of using Theraderm anti-dandruff shampoo. The product is still being made today.

Starting an advertisement with a person in a 17th century costume being dunked in river, as if they are a witch, may be strange but it at least achieves the effect of grabbing the viewer's attention.

The advertisement's use of simple animation effectively explains how the product works. The closing sequence has all the engaging romance of a feature film from an earlier era of cinema.
