Advert: Betty Crocker – Simply Blissful Baking
Music: Nat King Cole – L-O-V-E
This UK TV ad for long-established US baking brand Betty Crocker features some retro-styled women (but notably no men) rediscovering the joy of baking. Betty Crocker wasn’t named after a real person – the company was actually started by a woman named Marjorie Husted in 1921. The soundtrack features the unmistakeable voice of Nat King Cole, singing L-O-V-E, which was released as a single in 1964, shortly before his death in February 1965. L-O-V-E is available to download from iTunes.
