Animation. Milk bottles rapping - and breakdancing - in a lane beside ‘Joe’s Milk Bar’ to explain the differences between the different coloured tops on bottles. (Graffiti on the lane wall reads ‘The Force’ and ‘May the Force Be With You.’)

“Everybody ready?” raps the silver-capped bottle,” We’re gonna learn The Milk Bottle: Now the silver cap is a milk lover’s dream. That’s why we call it full cream.”

“And,” the second bottle takes over, “the blue-striped cap is no surprise. It’s what we call homogenised.”

“This green-striped cap tells you that ‘tis a lean mean bottle with no fat.”

“Red cap shorty is just the thing when all you want is real fresh cream.”

“So,” raps the the alley cat that has been observing them, “Learn the Bottle whatever you do.”

All the bottles together: “It’s milk man. May the Force Be With You.”
