Ovaltine is a tasty, chocolatey, milky drink that parents love just as kids. From that simple premise comes this surprisingly sinister commercial!
In this dark ad we see a little boy come home to an empty house. I don’t mean that his family is simply out. They’ve taken their possessions and cleared out!
The reason becomes clear when Jacob comes to the fridge. Apparently he’s been warned about the “consequences” of not sharing the Ovaltine. I’m sure he never imagined how dire those consequences would be!
I’m not really sure whether scaring kids silly is a good way to encourage them to eat Ovaltine, but it made me laugh!
