I’ve written before about how hard it is to get Hatstand right.
Is it subjective?
Do any of you prefer this to Touch, Pinata and Beard?
If successful Hatstand is a matter of random chance then why have almost all the Skittles ads since Pinata been a bit disappointing?
Nah. They’re not nearly as good as ‘Touch’ or ‘Pinata’ because there is no sense of hopelessness/tragedy that comes through the cursed characters. Not with the ‘woo’ and the ‘laughing’.
Plus the main characters in T & P make you think (be it a tinsy bit) about how crap it would be to be beaten like a Pinata all the time or unable to anything without turning it into skittles. For example, what if the ‘Touch’ guy masturbates?
Lastly, everything in ‘Touch’ and ‘Pinata’ is normal except for the main character. It’s easier to transport yourself to that world.
This one is just in cuckoo land.
Know what I call Skittles? That’s right. Shittles.
Ha ha ha ha ha ha.
Personally, I rate Pi√±ata as one of the best commercials ever.

Pinata is genius. This is still good.
Definately not as good as ‘Pi√±ata’ or ‘Touch’, but still a lot better than the usual drivel we get on TV.
‘Pi√±ata’ and ‘Touch’ were fantastic because they combined a messed up reality with excellent character performances. ‘Fists’ is set in a weird enough environment, but the performances are meh.
Looks like the budget was smaller & tellingly they didn’t have Tom Kuntz this time round.
Dogshit the rainbow.
Pi√±ata is amazing. This new one has no drama or comedy. It’s just two stoners laughing at nothing
This one’s pretty good
I wish they made Sausage Skittles
Nothing is better than touch.
It’s on par with that Maynards ad.
The tragic nature of Touch and Pinata were what made them so appealing. This is just trying too hard.
in theory if the touch guy masturbated nothing would happen except sex juice would spurt out of his member.
such an illogical comment
any creative circle gossip??
“i had an idea”
“that these giant fists would find a giant cock and latch onto it, instead.”
“what a great idea. but where are you going to find a giant cock?”
“Easy. Hand me that copy of Campaign’s A-List”
@Sausage man, imagine if they could make a sausage and gravy flavoured skittle.
I think we know who’d be barging their way to the front of that queue.
