Harold Einstein Directs Skittles' "Romance" For Super Bowl, adam&eveDDB
London agency adam&eveDDB created this Super Bowl ad which opens on a boy in front of a house in the middle of the night. He proceeds to throw Skittles at the window of his girlfriend’s room, hoping to get her attention, presumably to whisk her away for a little romance.
But this story of young love takes a comedic turn as we see a procession of people--and one furry animal--with their mouths open, welcoming each thrown Skittle.
Harold Einstein directed this spot titled “Romance” via production house Outsider, London. (He maintains his own production house, dummy, in the U.S.). VFX house was The Mill.
