Although it is one of the Momoya’s TV advertisement series of 1969titled “Summer Dishes,” this piece, a version of EDO-MURASAKI, differs from the other 2 ads in terms of their narratives. Except for the composite of a small animated character in male underclothing Suteteko and belly warmer Haramaki in the very last scene, this TV ad makes use of only live action shots. They consist of a variety of vegetables in kitchen sink, the cooking scene, several summer dishes including a chilled tofu Hiyayakko and cold Somen noodles, and also Japanese wind chime called Furin. The sound of a water steam and a vivid color of fresh vegetables effectively appealsfor those who lost an appetite in a heat of summer.
