CANAL COMEDIE PLUS WILL DELAY YOUR DEPRESSION
In a spot directed by John Grammatico, A priest is given the difficult task of bearing earth-shattering news. Fortunately, he and his altar boy have the foresight of rolling in a suitable distraction — Canal comedie, the television distributor’s comedy channel. “Vous deprimerez plus tard,” it promises. (You can be depressed later.)
The tagline reappears in the campaign’s two other spots “Dog” where humor is helps a little girl cope and “Doctor,” where laughter actually is the best medicine.
