    Reminder to post early for Christmas.

  • Description

    POST HASTE - TRAILER

    Man looking at knot and tries to work out why he tied the knot. Remembers and jumps out of bed and starts to write letters and write on package. He says 'post early for Christmas' and 'December 18th' and keeps repeating this and runs off. Written message appears 'Post Early This Christmas and Not Later than December 18th'. Man sits smoking with lit candles on all the fingers of one hand, holding a letter in the other, with a leafy wreath around his head and a large circular disc attached to the back with the message 'He Posted Early for Christmas' on it, with tinkling Christmassy music on in the background.

    Note: Quite bizarre and funny final shot of man smoking with lit candles on his fingers.

    NB: item was originally part of Gazette issue 45/98.
