Subject: Copied from Fischinger
A trailer for that 1934 ad is at vimeo.com/showcase/3111432/video/302370872
The link for Fischinger information in plastron's review is incorrect and outdated though. The Fischinger films are papers were gifted to Center for Visual Music years ago, that link is centerforvisualmusic.org/Fischinger
The link given by plastron is now only for a private family trust with some paintings. They no longer handle his films or papers, and have no historians, curators or archivists involved anymore. Beware incorrect, outdated info at that site.

Subject: A Little Background on this Commercial
This commercial, with all of its wonder and amazement, is still a great history lesson in advertising. You know this had to be stop action photography and it wasn't done with computers!
Subject: Cigarettes on the March
Subject: Cheap yet impressive
Subject: Modern use for this gem...
Subject: Rip-off? Maybe, maybe not.
Otherwise, it's well to remember that there are very, very few totally original ideas in the world, especially in advertising.
Having actually seen this film, I'd say it's an above-average example for the time period.
