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.

Miller Lite and Jason Witten Surprise Dallas Football Fans with a Beer Delivery



New video from DDB Chicago shows football legend Witten trading in his jersey for a delivery uniform.

Beers are here! To kick off the football season, Miller Lite partnered with former tight end and longstanding Miller Lite fan, Jason Witten, to surprise select diehard Dallas football fans with beer deliveries at their homes.

“Miller Lite believes in celebrating and rewarding fans because not only are we football fans at heart, but we’ve enjoyed almost 30 years as the official beer of Dallas football,” said Anup Shah, Vice President, Miller Family of Brands. “We chose loyal fans who hold true to their love of the game, their team and their beer. When Jason Witten arrived at their door in his Miller Lite gear to surprise them with ice cold beers, the reactions were priceless.”

DDB Chicago created a video of Witten’s “Beer Delivery” experience for fans that’s now live on YouTube.

“This was a perfect way to kick off the season,” said Witten. “For me, it’s always been about the fans. They deserve to be celebrated, so when Miller Lite offered me the chance to surprise some of the most loyal Dallas football fans, I couldn’t turn it down. Plus, I got to enjoy a couple of Miller Lites along the way.”

Witten surprised three different viewing parties in the Dallas–Fort Worth area on a Sunday during the football pre-season. Although fans knew they were being filmed by Miller Lite, they had no idea that Witten would be arriving at their door, cooler in hand. Highlights of the video include fans’ surprise reactions to Witten’s arrival, a group running a football play with him, and one fan declaring, “oh my gosh, we just drank a Miller Lite with Jason Witten.”

Miller Lite is The Only Beer of the Dallas Cowboys, and has been a Sunday staple for football fans for years. With only 96 calories and 3.2 grams of carbs, Miller Lite is the perfect beer to enjoy as you watch games on football Sunday.
