This Skittles Mother’s Day Commercial Will Make You Cringe

Sorry for the clickbait-y title, but here’s one that will definitely make you cringe, if not give you full-on nightmares. Skittles is known for their bizarre advertising, but here’s one that goes above and beyond. We’ve got a creepy looking mother and son, and when Mom eats Skittles, son eats them too, and is able to identify the flavors. How? Well, turns out the umbilical cord is still connected. It’s horrifying, but if memorable is what they were going for, then the spot by DDB Chicago does just that.

Skittles’ Super Bowl Commercial: Katie!

With the Super Bowl a little over a week away, many of the big game ads have already been released. It’s been like this for numerous years now, and I’m not a fan. For an advertising nerd like me, there’s something special about seeing a brand new Super Bowl commercial. But that’s the way it is, so I guess I’ll just have to get on the trolley. Skittles has always had weird ads, and this one is no different. Fortunately, unlike last Super Bowl’s Steven Tyler spot, this one is actually good. A guy is throwing Skittles at Katie’s window and repeatedly calling her name. Only thing is Katie, her parents, grandma, a burglar, a cop, and a beaver (or gopher?) are all catching the Skittles in their mouths. It’s a bizarre and amusing ad, created by London’s adam&eveDDB.

Skittles Pox…Gahh!

This Skittles ad isn’t new at all, having been released in late May 2015. And it was a popular one, racking up more than 43 million views. But I saw it recently, and realized that I’d never written about it. It’s weird like a lot of Skittles commercials. And creepy. Oh so creepy.

Here’s A Skittles Riddle: Why Is This Girl Making Out With A Walrus?

Skittles has a long history of trippy/memorable/crazy commercials. And here’s the newest, created by DDB Chicago. Skittles Riddles are something I would have thought were awesome as a kid. And you see, the girl isn’t really making out with a walrus, she’s making out with a person who’s a walrus on the inside. Or something like that. I dunno. Ridiculous.
