Description of Title: In 1964, the Summer Olympics were held in Tokyo for the first time in Asia.

In parallel with the Momoya’s TV ad titled “Olympic Oath,”this piece was produced in connection with the Tokyo Olympics in 1964, which was held in Asia for the fist time. The scene is set in a competition swimming pool with 5 lanes in the center and 2 levels of the stands on both sides. Zooming in the starting blocks, the following shot introduces Olympic swimmers named 5 different kinds of Momoya products one after another with an announcement. The closing part of this TV ad, such as flapping flag with“the five jar lids,” not “the five Olympic rings,”and the quotation from Pierre de Frédy, Baron de Coubertin, known as Father of modern Olympics, in the voice-over narration is almost same as the “Olympic Oath” version. In Tokyo Olympics, the swimming games were held in Yoyogi National Gymnasium, and American swimmer Don Schollander won gold medals.
