I’ve always had a somewhat strange ability to memorize commercials. i’m sure if this part of my brain was wired to remember facts and figures, I would’ve done a whole lot better in school – but the fact remains, I am wired for bad jokes, and jingles.
In 1996 M&Ms got on the “holiday candy” train and introduced festive red and green M&Ms.
I remember this commercial really well, and still get a chuckle over Yellow’s concerned “Santa?” at the expense of Red – who is kinda crusty anyway and probably deserves to be left on the floor.
This new 90 second commercial picks up where that story left off, and follows yellow as he tries to save Christmas. My hat goes off to the creative team that put this together – it hit me right in the feels, and I found myself tearing up slightly.
I know it’s” just a silly commercial,” but I had the sudden urge to feed my emotions candy coated chocolates.
