Actimel Approved by Grandmother (partially found Russian advertising sketch comedy web series; 2013-2015)
Actimel Approved By Grandmother was an advertising mini sketch-com, created by AdWatch Isobar and Danone Russia in 2013, to promote the Actimel drink. The plot involved a vigorous village grandmother who is trying with all her might to strengthen the immunity of urban relatives during the winter cold. To do this, the pensioner uses proven folk remedies: "radish-artist," "turnip for strengthening" and other vitamin-containing vegetables, trying to replace the beloved Actimel with them.
