Molly Ringwald returns in second Avocados teaser

It seems just like yesterday we reported on Energy BBDO’s comical new teaser for client, Avocados from Mexico Super Bowl spot. In fact, it was actually Tuesday that we saw Pretty in Pink and Sixteen Candle star Molly Ringwald pampering the star of the upcoming sixth Super Bowl commercial from Avocados From Mexico’s (AFM).

Today, to continue the buzz around the full ad, the brand released its second, “Neck Pillow,” which features Molly and one Avocados From Mexico avocado in the back seat of a car heading to the Super Bowl. The avocado is sitting in a car seat with a plush neck pillow as they are making the long trek from Mexico to Miami.  Watch below:

Fun. The Big Game is on February 2 and the Reel 360 Team can’t wait to see the actual spot.

“When I first heard about this opportunity, not only was I excited because it’s my first Super Bowl ad, but I was thrilled to work with a brand that I am both familiar with and eat on a regular basis,” said Ringwald. “Avocados From Mexico are worth it because they are healthy, delicious on everything and always in season. I hope people love this funny, entertaining ad as much as I’ve loved filming it.”
