"Vitameatavegamin" Used In Texas Classroom

An ESL teacher in Lake Jackson, Texas used a clip of Lucy Ricardo pitching "Vitameatavegamin" to inspire beginning-English speakers. reports:

The ESL class began meeting the first week of September and ended this month. To prepare for their commercial, each student selected a product, created a slogan, wrote a script and designed a poster to use as a visual prop.

For inspiration, the class watched the classic Lucille Ball “Vita Vegamin” television clip, in which the comedian tries to sell a vitamin drink during a live commercial.

“We all enjoyed that,” Cherian said.
