Super Bowl 2012: Our Fave Ads!

February 6th, 2012 by Vicki No comments »

You may have tuned in to watch the New York Giants beat the New England Patriots during last night’s Super Bowl game, but half-time shows and commercials are sometimes the biggest draw. Alas, Canada doesn’t get the chance to see the famous ads until the day after. But after some time spent on YouTube, here are a few of our faves from 2012.

Chrysler had a powerful ad last year featuring rapper Eminem. This year, they put out an equally-moving commercial for the Super Bowl featuring Clint Eastwood.

We just can’t help but laugh at this commercial featuring the new Ms. Brown M&M’s character… and Red showing just how sexy he is.

This motivated puppy makes for a cute and inspirational commercial. And there’s even a shout-out to last year’s successful Mini Vader ad!

We were already introduced to this ad for the Honda CR-V, but it is worth bringing up again! Matthew Broderick has his own day off from work in this adaptation of the hit Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

This ad for David Beckham’s new bodywear line (available at H&M) needs no words. Just the soccer star in his skivvies works fine for us.

M&Ms: Meet the Divine Ms. Brown

January 26th, 2012 by Vicki 1 comment »

Red, Yellow, Green, Blue and Orange… we all know and love the five lovable (and delicious!) M&M’s characters. But get ready, because a new kid on the block is joining the gang!

It was recently announced that M&M’s will be introducing a new spokescandy to the fold, known as Ms. Brown. Who is she? Well, Mars Canada Inc. describes her as wise, super-smart and witty, and has a firm grasp on all things milk chocolate. In fact, she holds the position as Chief Chocolate Officer!

The five existing candies really bring life to the yummy, chocolatey snack candies we love so much, and we’re definitely looking forward to Ms. Brown’s big reveal. Will she be as sexy and seductive as Ms. Green? Guess we’ll find out soon: Ms. Brown is set to make her big debut on January 30th at 3 pm EST at The Grove in Los Angeles, as well as at M&M’s World in New York City. Plus, we’re hearing rumblings about a Super Bowl appearance. Hmm…

Her big reveal will also be streamed live at
