This advertisement for Streets “Trop-o-Saurus Slime” icy pole products has been broadcast since October 2013 on commercial television in Sydney, Perth and Melbourne. Two young children (a young boy and a young girl) are seen running through a jungle, before they find a PaddlePop Trop-o-Saurus “slime” icy pole in what appears to be a dinosaur egg. The young boy takes an enthusiastic bite as the product is described by a male voiceover: “New Paddle Pop Trop-o-Saurus Slime: with a gooey tangy sauce inside and a tasty tropical outside: because every great adventure needs a great treat! Try one today.” The young boy them metamorphoses into the Paddle Pop Lion, who is seen with a cartoon friend to be battling against animated adversaries, shooting green laser-beams and swinging through the jungle, as dinosaurs walk below. The Paddle Pop Lion are seen holding aloft the “Slimes”, before the scene cuts to the two young children, standing in the same position, with their icy poles held aloft. The final scene shows the “Slime” icy pole, Paddle Pop branding, and details of the associated website: Paddlepop.com.au.
