Snickers' new creative spots for Snickers Almond and Snickers Real Peanut Butter has plenty of laughs. BBDO New York put together two spots that extend the concept that you’re not at your best when you’re hungry.

In ‘Confession,’ a man is seen in a darkened room which looks like a church confessional. He proceeds to unload his moral and legal issues, confessing to spending time on the dark web, shoplifting, had feelings for his stepmother and borderline extortion. Pull back the camera and we see a man in his driveway asking the confessor to just “read the meter.” The tag is “Hunger leads to uncomfortable situations,” and it promotes the real peanut butter in Snickers candy bars.

‘Ahmend’ finds two friends in a car. The passenger asks the driver if he has e talks about how much he loves almonds, which he pronounces in a particularly annoying way. The driver’s frustration mounts after hearing ‘ahmend’ one too many times, so he forcibly extricates himself from the situation, in humorous, and potentially injurious fashion. It’s tagged with “You overreact when you’re hungry.”
