This soft drink advertisement has a strong resemblance to Oscar Grillo’s colourful animation for the Linda McCartney song Seaside Woman. The Kia Ora advert was directed and animated by Oscar Grillo at Klacto Animations. The characters carrying the piano at the end are by Ted Rockley and the complete tracing was by Lyn Rockley.
