SNICKERS® reveals its new Super Bowl LIV ad by BBDO New York & AMV BBDO

BOAST is a place where you can find out about recent creative campaigns. 

It is a space where agencies can tell us about the new work they are proud of; blowing their own trumpet, so to speak. 

Here's the latest from the creative world as we know it.

A campaign by BBDO New York & AMV BBDO

SNICKERS will have a :30 spot entitled “SNICKERS Fixes the World” that will run during the first quarter of the game, but the brand have now released a special long-form version. 

In the iconic candy brand’s signature humour, they present an absurdly satisfying solution for fixing the world when the world is clearly not itself. 

The new commercial honours the tenth anniversary of the “You’re Not You When You’re Hungry” campaign, one of the most awarded and well-known campaigns in advertising history, and marks the 90th anniversary of the iconic SNICKERS candy brand. 

This will be SNICKERS’ sixth Super Bowl ad in the past decade.

The new ad, which also includes an original song, was created by BBDO New York and AMV BBDO. 

Dubbed "SNICKERS Fixes the World," the new spot highlights humorous and relatable signs of a world that's clearly not itself, such as grown-ups riding scooters, babies named after produce, devices that listen to your conversations and parents who text dirty pics. 

The brand's solution is then revealed.

As a crowd gathers in song to watch, a giant SNICKERS is "fed" to the Earth in a grand attempt to fix the world. The spot ends with some evidence that SNICKERS' plan just may be working.

Josh Olken, Brand Director, SNICKERS said "This new ad marks the latest evolution of our award-winning 'You're Not You' campaign". 

"Since the first Super Bowl spot 10 years ago, we've shown the power of SNICKERS to satisfy when you're out of sorts. Our attempt to 'fix the world' is a new angle, and our biggest yet: When the world itself is out of sorts, maybe it just needs a SNICKERS."


Actor Luis Guzmán, known for his prolific character roles, makes an appearance in this year's Super Bowl ad where he helps celebrate SNICKERS for fixing the world.

The spot will air during the third commercial break of the first quarter of Super Bowl LIV. The longform version of "Fix the World" SNICKERS released on YouTube features Miranda Cosgrove, Bill Walton and Charlotte Flair.
