Overland Whippet

Loading the player...

In this creative advertisement, promoting the Overland Whippet car, live action sequences showcasing the vehicle are intercut with humorous animation scenes.

An animated figure, identified only as "Skeptic," has his hat blown away by "4 wheel brakes! The first light car to adopt them!" According to the advertisement, the very modern car has "Hill-Power," "Brake-Power," "Ease in Traffic," and "High Speed."

"All of our traffic problems are over!" it announces, as an excited animated figure turns a backflip.

This advertisement was made overseas, with the final title then customised to promote local automobile companies – in this case Wellington company A. C. Hatrick.
