"Futuristic" 1990s instant soup ad from Latin America
September 4, 2013 7:55 PM   Subscribe

I'm trying to track down a television ad for instant soup that aired in Latin America in the 1990s. A young woman arrives home, prepares the advertiser's instant soup, and sits down to eat in front of a computer. On the screen, a man is waiting to welcome her to dinner, which was science fiction when the commercial aired.

Can anyone with a good memory, archive access, or better Google skills help? Any details would be appreciated; a video would be excellent.

Thank you, ipsative, that's exactly it. Your link got slightly corrupted; here is a fixed link to the video.

Marking "resolved".

Very sweet!

It does look like it was at least as late as 2003 if not 2005. The music in the ad is by Carla Bruni, who would later become First Lady of France.

Here she is playing the song Quelqu'un m'a dit (also in my other link), which appeared on her first album in 2003.
