Like many wonderful American ads, it gets the selling bit right out there, front and centre.
Then it goes batshit crazy (Skittles, Starburst, Nextel).
Thanks God for that.

I feel like British people would appreciate this quirky humour even more than Americans – why do you think we don’t get ads like this over here?
Looks like fun. Wish I made it.
This is the masterpiece the world has been waiting for. How the fuck do people come up with this stuff?
If it is simply down to drugs, please send me some.
Here’s why we don’t. There’s a fundamental mismatch between the calibre of the agency and the calibre of the Marketing Directors.
A first rate agency gets a few first rate Marketing Directors and lots of second rate ones.
A second rate agency gets a one or two second rate ones at best, lots of third rate ones and a few fourth rate ones.
A third rate agency and below gets the tenth rate ones, but just occasionally, there’s sweetcorn in the shit.
Remember that David Abbott complained that selling his work was just as hard as it was for everyone else and you’ll know where I’m coming from.
