Enjoy a Schweppes before being eaten alive

In this ad from Mother in London, doofus Dad gets home from work to find his house—and to an oddly bloodless extent, his family—torn apart by a big cat. Don't you hate when that happens? Thanks to Schweppes, Dad keeps cool, and lets the kid keep the kitty. (He'll be hitting the hard stuff later, after the animal quits playing around.) Mom's also pretty dim, which is refreshing, and that's what Schweppes is all about, I guess. Since the toothy terror is a leopard, more spots should be forthcoming. Ha ha!
