Twinings Tea Advert Divides Greenygrey Media Theory

Hi, it’s Harry Silhouetteof-Wolfhowlingonhill, television correspondent at the Greenygrey. I had a great advert to review this week, reminding me so much of Greenygrey’s rambles. Moreover, the Twinings tea advert is available on YouTube.

Twinings Tea Advert

Twinings Tea Twins 

First of all, let’s look at the Twinings name, which reminds me of Green and Grey, who are like twins when apart.

Then the advert has a woman making her way through greenygrey, in what the top comment on YouTube describes as beautiful animation.

Divided Person Finds Herself

The woman then emerges onto a mountain peak, where she is helped up by another her, with the strapline: gets you back to you.

That reminded me of Grey returning to Green, after Green helped Grey along the way a couple of times, as told in Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps.

Green and Grey Fields of Greenygreyism

The only controversy is the role played by greenygrey at the start of the advert.

The Green field of Greenygreyist media theory argues that the greenygrey is helping the woman climb her mountain, while the Grey field of Greenygreyism believes that the woman is escaping the greenygrey to a brighter place.

Tea Happy Ending 

There is a happy ending anyway, with the hills and mountains visible from her tea-drinking peak a more subtle mixing of greenygrey.
