In this hilarious spot for Juicy Fruit gum, BBDO/Chicago takes Wrigley's "Gotta Have Sweet" campaign to the set of a corny kiddie show called Happyville Junction. A grinning hostess and a giant whale sing a syrupy tune about sharing and caring ("I'll give you some when you have none!") - a message that goes straight out the window when the whale plucks the gum out of his partner's pocket and waddles offstage. The furious woman runs and tackles him, causing water to squirt out his blowhole - an inspired touch. She then proceeds to beat him with his own flipper.
