Peter Max's Psychedelic Television Commercials


Movie refreshment ad


American Cancer Society ad


7-Up ad from 1968


7-Up ad from 1970

I accidentally came across these psychedelic animated television ads by artist Peter Max, and I must say it's some of the sweetest shit I've ever seen in my life. I only know a little about Peter Max so I'm gonna spare the effort of writing anything about him and just throw up a wikipedia link instead.

Unique commercials! The graphics of those psychedelic animated commercials reminds me of the 70's. It seemed very funky in a cosmopolitan way.

Animations have been constantly used in commercials because of their artistic value. Video production companies (Toronto and other places) utilize them as a good way to attract their target market. They are very effective because of their fun feel that adds color to the usual programming of a TV commercial. Toronto and other parts of the world uses this concept as a good way to attract young people and those that are young at heart. Thanks!
