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.[1]


A total of 5 short episodes and a trailer were released on YouTube. In 2015, all of the episodes of the show were privated and weren’t available to watch except the trailer which was re-uploaded by user "bless myentry."

As of April 29th, 2021 all five episodes were rediscovered online. A Google Drive containing all of the episodes and trailers was made on March 21st, 2022.


The short plot is taken from the archived website, from WayBack Machine and translated using Google Translate.[2]
