The J.M. Smucker Company's latest spot is an ad campaign for 1850 Coffee, featuring creative as bold as the ‘contraband caffeine’ itself.

The centerpiece of the campaign is a cop dramedy, a two-minute short film which smartly blends creative storytelling and craft, with some pure, never cut, brand equity. 1850 Coffee is a brand with quality so high, so pure, it’s questionable if coffee this good is even legal.
