A Look at Artistic Tea Commercials
By William I. Lengeman III
Maybe you’ve noticed or perhaps not, but there’s a wonderful world of tea videos and commercials out there. It’s easy to access nowadays with video sharing sites everywhere, and it’s especially interesting to see what tea commercials you might have missed if you don’t watch much TV or don’t live in a country where a certain ad campaign might have aired.
When it comes to style, tea commercials run the gamut. Based on my unscientific observations, it seems like the most common and the most popular of the bunch are the funny ones. But there are also many that attempt to get their message across in a more artistic fashion. Here are a few of the highlights:

I guess I'm going out on a limb with the headline but if you can find a tea commercial that outcreeps this one please let me know. It's from Herbaria Tea, a Hungarian company who apparently decided that the way to sell more of their herbal tea was to scare the crapola out of potential consumers. As they put it, it's "a commercial that demonstrates the calming effect of Herbaria tea in an inventive and eye-catching way."
Well now, there's a masterpiece of understatement. Watch if you dare, but if you're a sensitive sort you should pass.
