Vaseline Sheer Infusion Acrobats

Unilever is promoting Vaseline Sheer Infusion, a new moisturizer, with “Amazing Moisture”, a television commercial featuring men and women performing in white bodysuits. Sheer Infusion, with Stratys-3™, infuses and suspends superior moisture across all layers of your skin. Acrobats in white perform an aerial ballet on three layers in a 60 foot set, watched by a live audience and accompanied by music from Peer Gynt Suite No. 1. A woman pulls out her own personal bottle to provide an up close personal demo.
