Summary

A commercial promoting Mogul motor oil.

Synopsis

A car amidst city skyscrapers crawls from its last powers. It then pastes up a poster with the sign "All You Affected, Protest!" The Appeal is joined by damaged spare parts of cars and other machines and call out SOS. New spare parts, however, begin marching from one of the skyscrapers – screws, small wheels, carburettors –, all treated with the new motor oil, Mogul. The commentator then invites: "Do not get cripped any more, save yourself while there's time!"

Note

The end of the negative includes 3,3 meters of colour material whose filming originally employed the Gasparcolor system.
