Extra Gum’s Lovely New Commercial Follows A Young Couple’s Relationship
October 8, 2015 Leave a comment
Extra Gum’s origami commercial from 2013 was extremely popular, and still stands as one of the most viewed and shared posts on this blog. Now there’s a followup created by Energy BBDO that hits on another emotional soft spot: young people in love. In “The Story of Sarah & Juan”, we follow a young couple’s relationship through good and bad, stretching from high school into adulthood. Extra Gum plays a prominent role of course and the ad culminates with pictures drawn on Extra wrappers of memorable moments in their relationship and then a picture of the next step. Haley Reinhart provides a version of Elvis Presley’s oft-covered “Can’t Help Falling In Love”, a song that always manages to sound beautiful. A lovely, sweet, and yes, a little sappy spot from Extra Gum. Here’s some more information about it from Adweek.
