From time to time, it’s good to be reminded that no matter what you’ve got going on, you deserve to give yourself a little break. A little escape from reality. Even if it’s only for a moment. And even if it’s only with something as simple as a snack. Yaaas. The new campaign from Hormel brand, Skippy the Reel 360 Team loves crunchy), aims to give people just that.
Created by our friends at BBDO Minneapolis and launching yesterday, these dreamy yet familiar, music-driven spots showcase those moments in life where you could really use a second to yourself.
With a simple scoop of Skippy Peanut Butter, these characters are reminded that, when you take a second to live in the moment, you feel a little bit better. Whether you’re dealing with destructive puppies or chaotic kids, the maker of Skippy Peanut Butter just wants the audience to know they get it.
