Jean-Thomas Bédard’s incisive avant-garde work This Is A Recorded Message (1973) is available for viewing courtesy of the National Film Board Of Canada, and they’ve provided a succinct bit of contextual information about the movie via their Vimeo presentation of the short:

“Made up of hundreds of cut-out color ads projected in fragmented, rapid succession, this animated film without words takes a critical look at the conditioning process that underlies consumerism in our world of materialism. Seductive advertising is seen as the main motivating force in shaping the desires, the needs and, to a large degree, the lives of modern men and women. A provocative film to stimulate reflection.”
