Synopsis[edit]

Colonel Proudfoot of Proudfoot Industries tries to entice a couple of newly qualified dentists to advertise "Dreem", a revolutionary type of toothpaste, but he knows that if the dentists learn that they are part of an advertising campaign, they will be struck off, and the campaign will be a disaster.

Cast[edit]

Alternative use[edit]

The studio logos, opening credits and a brief portion of this film's opening scene is an "Easter egg" in the special edition DVD of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. The scene plays automatically if "Play Movie" is selected from the main menu (unless the movie is already in progress). As the screen goes dark, a sputtering, unseen "projectionist" is heard fumbling for the correct reel of film; a "slide" then appears urging the audience to wait while the projectionist changes reels. The 'correct' Monty Python movie's opening credits play properly from there.
