Dewars Scotch Whiskey (1897)
A stationary camera records four men, in a line facing the camera, costumed, dancing enthusiastically. Three are in kilts and Scottish garb, the fourth wears the suit of an eighteenth- or nineteenth-century dandy. They dance in front of a backdrop of dark curtains with "Dewar's Scotch Whisky" in bold letters above. At the end of the one-minute film, they stop dancing and move as if to enter the curtained rooms behind them, perhaps to knock back a Dewar's.- Written by <email@example.com>
A line of giddy, possibly drunk men, dressed in Scottish highland outfits, perform a disorderly dance routine in front of a sign advertising the product of the title. This film is often described as the first filmed advertisement.- Written by Kieran Kenney
