In UK, Snickers Satisfies…With Balls

In America, we’re quite familiar with the long-running Snickers campaign that involved turning back into yourself after you eat the caramel peanut chocolatey goodness. Here’s one if the spots, involving divas Aretha Franklin and Liza Minelli:

So I wasn’t too surprised to see that campaign running on the telly in London…until I got to the very end. Check out the British version on the “divas” spot:

Instead of the tag line “Satisfies,” the cheeky English ender is “Get Some Nuts.” Very clever — ties back to the actual product as well as the commercial theme to “stop acting like a whiny woman because you’re hungry and eat a Snickers.”

As brilliant as this is, it could never work for the family-friendly M&M Mars company in the US because of the backlash that would be sure to result from the lack of political correctness. Shame, isn’t it?

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
