After spending many years together, peanut butter has decided it’s had enough of jelly’s antics and is ready to strike out on its own — at least according to nut butter purveyor MaraNatha, whose latest campaign features a lovelorn piece of bread slathered with jelly that can’t seem to fathom why he’s been dumped by his PB&J counterpart.

Created by New York agency Terri & Sandy, the quirky campaign aims to position MaraNatha’s line of peanut, almond and speciality butters as being “too good” for jelly.

One ad features an ‘80s-style montage of jelly as he goes through typical breakup clichés, like drinking alone in a dimly lit bar and walking dejectedly through the rain. Another features jelly late-night texting peanut butter in hopes of a second chance, a move that goes awry when peanut butter calls him out for being slightly drunk on corn syrup.
