  • Description

    To remind all good children that their teeth should be brushed regularly - and to boost toothpaste sales - fifty thousand Tokyo, Japan, children were filmed by VISNEWS June 4 watching a mass demonstration by seven thousand other children - all vigorously scrubbing to the music of six military bands.

    Each of the seven thousand 'demonstrators' - from Tokyo kindergartens and primary schools - scrubbed their teeth up and down in a ten stroke rhythmic exercise, at the command of staccato barks from Riichi Egi, physical exercise instructor on Tokyo radio.

    After the 'Youth Tooth' rally the children were entertained by a parade of Samurai Warriors. Traditional Japanese warrior caste, now extinct.
