Shasta

 I stumbled across this absolutely charming vintage T.V. commercial on Internet Archive a couple of years ago. It's for the American cola brand Shasta and features Dr. Frankenstein and his creation (called Igor in the commercial) in their laboratory. The Doctor sends Igor to  "go and get me what I crave". Igor then visits the local grocery store to pick up some Shasta.

 I feel like this commercial is also notable for the inclusion of John Fielder as the store clerk, probably best known as one of Disney's most popular voice actors, playing Piglet of Winnie the Pooh fame for many years. As well as and ending voice over by another popular actor Tom Bosley, aka Mr. Cunningham on Happy Days.

You can watch and/or download the commercial from the Internet Archive here I've also tried to represent it as best as possible using screen captures below to help illustrate the simple yet absolutely effective colour design.
