GALLERY 33: Most Talked About - Typhoo

Casting the lead characters for these ads was difficult. Around 30 people were auditioned for each ad in order to find two people who could deliver dialogue and were agile enough to cope with the physical demands. Their declining energy levels are represented using a mixture of painted-out wires hauling the actors upwards and balloons deflating in their oversized clothes. They then get their energy and 'oo' back with a cup of Typhoo in Clemmow Hornby Inge's first work on the brand relaunch.
