“Chippie Chippie Chippie” … Bring back memories?
What a funny character, but a clever advertising one too!
The Gobbledok grabbed my attention, Im sure he made me buy more Smith’s chips.
I scored this poster (right) in the late 80’s from a local milk bar in Ringwood Victoria, it used to go above the chips display rack. Asking the milk bar owner politely if I could have it when they were done with it, and here it is, still have it today. Looks like a few break dancers on potato planet Dok, doing “The Dok” .. WTF?
Well, sales of chips for Smiths increased with the launch of this lil fella that was only supposed to be a one-of for a commercial shoot to promote the new “Fresh Seal” (foil lining) packets.. this is when I began collecting chip packets.
