Finding out this was made by a telephone company helps me understand a bit.

This short preceded the film "Night of the Blood Beast" on an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000. I had a hard time trying to understand what this film was trying to convey as it is about an angel who is sent down to Earth to help a man and woman finally get to their honeymoon after nearly a year of marriage. Yes, all the problems of the world and this is what heaven focuses on which probably explains why the world is in such a sorry shape today. Well the man has to write a jingle, meanwhile, the wife dreams of having her house redecorated and having phones everywhere! Which later I found out that a phone company was behind the short so the point of the whole thing is phones are great or something and you can have a color and style of phone that matches every decor. Why they felt to add an angel and the whole honeymoon subplot is beyond me, perhaps to pad it out and make it less direct? All I know is that this seemed to be a rather pointless short and that people actually took the time to put this thing together...seems like such a waste of time looking back on it as nobody is all that wild about house phones anymore.
