The Drum Works Ad of the Day: The Portrait - Skittles


By The Drum Team, Editorial

February 2, 2016 | 3 min read

Skittles has released its Super Bowl ad for the year, featuring a talking portrait of Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler and it surely is a sight to behold.

"The Portrait," created by DDB Chicago, sees the legendary rocker less than impressed with his image created using the candy which then talks and sings back to him in an effort to prove its worth.

Spoiler alert - it doesn't see out the ad in once piece as a result of its singing attempts.

We're sure Super Bowl fans as well as those of Tyler himself will love seeing him play on his image of excessive living (is that a castle he apparently lives in? We can believe it!)

See more coverage ahead of the game at The Drum's Super Bowl 50 hub.
