M&M’s Super Bowl LIII Commercial has Christina Applegate Dealing with a Few ‘Bad Passengers’



M&M'S Super Bowl LIII ad campaign features a 30-second spot that will be airing during Sunday's game. Emmy award-winning actress and comedian Christina Applegate has been tapped to star in the ad and marks the first time M&M'S has debuted a new product during a Super Bowl advertisement.

In the commercial, titled "Bad Passengers," created by BBDO New York, Christina finds herself in a universal situation many can relate to – dealing with squabbling passengers in the back seat that just won't behave. Throughout the spot, Christina's patience wears thin and she threatens to break the passengers apart…or worse, eat them. But finally, it's revealed that the bickering isn't coming from rambunctious children, it's coming from Red, Yellow and Orange, who are stuck together inside of a M&M'S Chocolate Bar.

"Our fans look forward to seeing our commercials, but they've never seen us like this. That's because this year, we made a decision to use entertainment's biggest stage to debut one of the most notable innovations in our brand's history," said Allison Miazga-Bedrick, Brand Director, M&M'S. "The surprising reveal at the end of the ad showcases the colorful fun of our brand in its newest form – M&M'S stuck together in a creamy chocolate bar."

Christina Applegate's involvement in the M&M'S Super Bowl LIII commercial was announced with a teaser video last week, with the actress comically yelling at her locked car in frustration. The full 30-second spot will air during the first commercial break following the kickoff of Super Bowl LIII on Sunday, Feb. 3, 2019 on CBS.

The new line of M&M'S Chocolate Bars is now available in retail stores nationwide in five flavors including Peanut, Milk Chocolate, Crispy, Almond and Crispy Mint. The bars consist of rich and creamy milk chocolate with whole M&M'S Minis throughout a large bar format, adding delicious, colorful fun to a new section of the chocolate aisle.

SK-II Aims to Inspire Millions of Chinese Women to Take the First Step to Overcome Marriage Pressure



Fresh out of Chinese New Year, global prestige skincare brand SK-II premieres an online documentary film that further broaches the topic of marriage pressure with an emotional appeal to single women worldwide – “Meet Me Halfway”.

An extension of the SK-II’s ongoing #changedestiny philosophy, “Meet Me Halfway” follows the real-life stories of three young single Chinese women as they bravely take on the daunting first steps of reaching out to their parents after years of avoiding and not returning home due to marriage pressure. Through sharing their stories and listening with an open mind, both sides meet halfway on
mutual ground with a sense of understanding and unexpected liberation.

Millions of young single women in China experience a disconnect from their parents citing marriage pressure as one of the top reasons. Many find themselves having to choose between living up to their parents and society’s expectations and timelines of marriage and their own dreams and aspirations.

Avoiding Chinese New Year has become a growing phenomenon among young single Chinese women as a result. For a young single Chinese woman, curious questions that arise from parents and relatives about boyfriends, marriage and even children during the week-long festivities create a suffocating and unbearable environment of pressure and urgency.

The film takes viewers to the heart of the matter, candidly showing the women’s first attempts of opening up to their parents about their lives and the marriage pressure they have been dealing with.

Through meeting halfway, both literally and figuratively, daughters begin to see their parents in a different light and come to the realization that the questions from their parents causing their burden were coming from a place of love and genuine care. Through bridging daughters and parents and facilitating an open dialogue about marriage pressure, SK-II hopes to provide a platform where
mutual understanding can be achieved to empower women to make their own choice, in their own
time.

“We want to tell women worldwide: Destiny can change, when you have the courage to take the first step to meet halfway.” shares Sandeep Seth, Vice President, Global SK-II. “We hope the stories of these three brave women can inspire other women to take the first step, start a conversation with their families about marriage pressure and in the process, empower them to live life on their own terms and shape their own destinies.”

“Meet Me Halfway” is SK-II’s latest installment in its ongoing #changedestiny campaign and a follow up to 2016’s award winning “Marriage Market Takeover” and 2017’s “The Expiry Date”.
