S.O.S Cleaning Pads
US 1950

By contrast, S. O.S Cleaning Pads, an early parody of TV ads, pokes harmless fun at Teutonic culture: after taking the stage with an obligatory “Achtung!” Hilda and her husband argue about their as yet unwashed dishes, which culminates in an a capella, gender-bend rendition of Wagnerian opera.
