M&M characters Red and Yellow made it all the way to the Oscars this weekend in the latest advert for the confectionary brand.

Created by BBDO New York, the action movie-style advert is littered with tonnes of genre clichés from secret files to ticking clocks.

Going for humour rather than emotional appeal pays off and will no doubt encourage viewers to reach for the M&Ms next time they head to the movies.
