As suspected, the “Joyville” ad posted here previously was the beginning of a wonker-like ride into the fun filled world of Cadbury.
This one is specific to Marvellous Creations.
A big production. No doubt appealing to the kids, but I would love to see it evolve with even more amazing bells and whistles. The pint and a half work stretched our imagination a bit more and I think in such a fun category even more liberties could be taken?
I like it – a nice diversion from the usual bite and mmmm approach. And the branding is top notch.
Eagerly awaiting more…actually still waiting for my multiple free bars “won” over a month ago!
Rarely do you come across TV work where you are intrigued enough to really want to watch it through and see who or what it is advertising.
This is one of those rare ads – nicely shot of course and wonderfully cast ( a genuine legend in Bill Baker and a large cast at that…), with a nod perhaps to Fat Boy Slim’s “Weapon of Choice” video featuring Christopher Walken? http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=ZM1fkHQP_Pw
Heaps of watchability in repeat viewing – spotting the Ducatti in the pool, red Ferrari, Hippy, Emu line up and more.
Welcome to the Jungle – is a nice touch. Relevant to what they are selling and a nice re-imagining of the Guns n Roses original.
Good work from the Monkeys in Sydney
As an interesting post script – debate is raging in the trade press (ref. B&T) following Richard Chees’e claim of plagiarism on the music. The Monkeys have strongly denied this.
Here is his version and his Facebook page is pretty much to the point in terms of his opinion…
