New Skittles Walrus Riddles TV Commercial AD

You walk in to your apartment to find your roommate making out with a walrus - what's your first thought? You wonder if the trollop has stolen your boyfriend, that's what. Or at least that's the story in the latest spot from Skittles Riddles, featuring VFX from MPC, who collaborated with DDB Chicago and Moxie Pictures Director Martin Granger on the effort.

This bizarre story continues with the accused explaining that the walrus, an enormous animatronic custom built by Moorpark, California's Animal Makers Inc., had assured her that he wasn't her roommate's boyfriend Bobby. Rather, he was like new Skittles Riddles - different on the outside than on the inside. She demonstrates by punching in a green-tinted candy that tastes like fruit punch, before continuing her googley-eyed romp-fest with the walrus.

MPC's biggest challenge was to make the animatronic walrus appear to be real, breathing life into the animal. The team created 3D eyes and eyelids for the walrus in post, while tracking and animating every move. After creating elaborate matte paintings that doubled the size of the walrus mass, MPC added flesh and fat, animated the nose, made the walrus' jaw move, added a tongue and neck fat, made his face twitch, belly quiver, time warped his head, and added breath to the animal. Telecine was done by MPC's US Creative Director of Color Grading, Mark Gethin.

Hershey’s “Heartwarming the World” Campaign featuring “Bells”



 
Hershey’s has always warmed hearts. Now through the “Heartwarming the World” campaign, the Hershey’s brand is on a mission, melting boundaries and dissolving distances--all to create a better, sweeter world.


This holiday season, the company is leveraging the iconic “Bells” TV commercial—beloved for nearly 30 years—into an active experience via broadcast, digital and social. Instead of just watching the commercial, for the first time ever, people get the chance to play the bells themselves, share the videos, and heartwarm everyone in their social circles.

On Instagram Stories, people can play and hear new bell sounds associated with KISSES Chocolates—hand bells, church bells, door bells, cow bells, DJ horn, and southern bells. Then, they can share the video with their friends and family and spread the holiday cheer.

The heartwarmed :15 “Bells” spot runs on TV and online (sites like Hulu) through Christmas. The “Bells” social experience is hosted on playthekisses.com, supported with an Instagram Story and in-feed Facebook and Instagram posts to drive audiences to playthekisses.com.
