• Short Summary

    Children have a bun fight as part of an advertising gimmick for a new floor mop.

  • Description

    London.

    Various shots show a group of businessmen sitting around a table as they are shown the latest model in floor mops; commentator tells us they are advertising men. One of the men makes a phone call; we see a man at a hotel reception answer the call and make notes.

    A press reception is held at the hotel to demonstrate the wonders of this new mop; chefs are seen preparing trays of cream cakes and set them on a lino floor in the hotel suite. Then a group of children are brought in, dressed in sacks and wearing knotted hankies on their heads. They have a huge food fight, then the messy floor is cleaned with the mop, as the press make notes and take photographs.

    Note: the floor mop company logo 'Plysu' is clearly seen in several shots. Cuts exist - see separate record.
