A cute and educational animated short film about “Psychology and Advertising.” Using images and style from the 1950s, the cartoon character “Little Timmy” learns lessons about direct and indirect messages, the psychology of colours, and more.

Sweet, funny, clever, and you’ll likely have fun while learning a few things about how marketers persuade you to buy products.
