US Ad of the Week: Ritz 'Life’s Rich'

Ritz crackers are celebrated for their buttery richness in the brand’s latest spot, which has been voted by US Creative Department readers as Ad of the Week.

Called 'Life's Rich,' the spot wishes viewers to be rich with happiness instead of rolls of money rich.

It's The Martin Agency’s first for the company after winning its business last year.

In the commercial, a voice proclaims: “May you be rich. So rich, nothing is out of reach,” while a little kid reaches for a Ritz cracker covered in chocolate spread and strawberries.

The :30 second ad is the first out of the campaign, with other versions debuting next month. A print version will launch in May as well.

If you’d like to vote for next week’s winner, visit our US Creative Department here. The ad that receives the most votes will be named ‘US Ad of the Week’ next Wednesday.
