The confectioner is bigging up Easter’s best-selling chocolate egg, its 3cm tall Mini Eggs, and its efforts have landed it our Ad of the Day.

To celebrate one of the UK’s most-loved Easter treats, Cadbury has created a social-first ad campaign that sees Mini Eggs fully live up to its name in a fun way.

What we love about this project is the attention to detail and the celebration of craft in miniature form. For the campaign, the chocolate brand worked alongside model maker Paul Baker, who made the tiny ads as well as little ladders, buckets and pasting brushes to bring the installations to life. One is even illuminated so that it can be shot in the dark of night.

There’s a real unexpectedness to it, too, with the social media videos filmed in situ, zoomed in at first before panning out to reveal their true scale.

Aside from the obvious craft, the shots are all about the product, which, at this time of year when people are gifting chocolate, is crucial.
