Ringwald puts best fruit forward in Super Bowl teaser

Instead of pretty in pink, Golden Globe-nominated actress, Molly Ringwald, is going to be alluring in avocado. For the second year running, Avocados From Mexico’s big game campaign was developed with creative agency partner Energy BBDO. Avocados From Mexico (AFM) today announced in their first teaser, titled “Tiara,” that they’ve partnered with Ringwald for their 2020 Super Bowl advertisement.

Glimpse a sneak peek at what the “Always Worth It” brand and Ringwald are cooking up for this year’s Big Game in the “Tiara” teaser. In the first teaser, directed by Moxie Pictures Frank Todaro, fans can watch Ringwald prep one of the Avocados From Mexico in its hair and makeup chair before the pair have their big Super Bowl ad moment. Even a star like Molly can see that Avocados From Mexico are always worth the extra attention.

“Our creative concept is a lot of fun and brings together a few of our favorite things – avocados, Molly Ringwald and of course, humor,” said Kevin Hamilton, head of brand marketing, PR & strategy at Avocados From Mexico. We felt Molly was the perfect fit for the brand given her prestigious career and the fact that she genuinely loves Avocados From Mexico.”

“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.”

Last year, Energy BBDO unleashed a Super Bowl spot that featured Kristin Chenoweth coaching a trio of canines on the proper way to sing the Avocados from Mexico jingles. This should be just as fun.
