Red and Yellow M&M's save the fate of humanity until a cell-phone rings in latest cinema campaign

A new ad for M&M’s cinema campaign, which encourages viewers to switch off their mobile phones, has seen all six M&M’S spokescandies united as they defuse bombs, plot secret missions and generally save the fate of humanity. Well, until a cell-phone rings.

The 40-second Public Service Announcement (PSA) was developed by BBDO New York, and has been supported by posters designed to encourage movie goers to silence their cellphones in the theater.
