Storyline

Tupperware is the brand name of a series of plastic food storage products for the home. Tupperware is designed to keep food flavor and odor inside the container. The design of products goes through a rigorous approval process resulting in a prototype which is used for engineering specifications. Metal molds are then designed, constructed and shipped to the various Tupperware manufacturing plants around the world. Tupperware is dependent on the petroleum industry, as plastics are a byproduct of the petroleum industry. Synthetic plastics came into being during WWII with the shortage of natural resources. Although the plastics used go through their own quality control upon purchase, they too undergo quality control tests by Tupperware. The combination of plastics are chosen for their meltability, weight and specific gravity. The molding machines are overseen by both an operator and a preventative maintenance team.

Wow. You may think this is going to be another boring industrial film--and indeed it is for the first twenty minutes--but then orange juice pitch person and anti-gay activist Anita Bryant shows up. And she belts out an absolutely AMAZING song all about Tupperware: "we're having a party...a Tupperware party..." Next, some guy who looks a bit like Jerry Lewis comes on and sings a version of Hello Dolly with new Tupperware-themed lyrics. There's also brief footage of Tupperware facilities around the globe, most of which, of course, have long since closed, including one in Wigan, Lancashire, which shut down in the late '80s. Oh sure, there's lots of blather about how, thanks to the miracle of plastics, Tupperware is keeping food fresher for longer, but who cares. We want Anita! We want Anita!
