Monsters and horror in British popular culture
Great ad, shame its not in colour
Great find, but a bit before my time. I'm more a Wall's Dracula' kid which came after, in 1981. The red translucent lolly carved in the dark one's image! Ad here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k05F76K4lEY
Hi VinceCertainly is a great ad and like you say shame its not in colour.If I ever come across one I'll certainly put the picture on.Hi OrcbaneYeah the Walls Dracula was fangtastic,love it that the red lolly was in the shape of Dracula.Great TV ad too,be nice to find one for Count Dracula's deadly secret too.
I'm not sure that there ever were any colour ads for Count Dracula's Deadly Secret lollies. They used to have ads for them in Marvel UK comics which were B&W reprints. There's an ad in mostly red here http://s3.amazonaws.com/data.tumblr.com/tumblr_lj7nznK0zp1qf83cro1_1280.jpg?AWSAccessKeyId=AKIAJ6IHWSU3BX3X7X3Q&Expires=1329759424&Signature=qQRoZj9VeMiTZ0UaXrAxLhx5XQ0%3DI think that's about as much in colour as it gets!
Thanks Chris,I have featured this ad before which I thought was a very nice ad for the Dracula lollies.I wish there were an archive of this sort of stuff,all wrappers,packets,advertising etc.
