M&Ms has introduced Ms Brown to the world of advertising in “Just My Shell”, a commercial launched during the 2012 Super Bowl. Ms Brown (voiced by Vanessa Williams) as Chief Chocolate Officer (CCO) has been working behind-the-scenes for the past seventy years, heling launch several new products and innovations in an effort to ensure M&M’S remain one of the best-selling milk chocolate candies in the world. She recently decided she could do even more good for the brand by stepping outside the executive office and serving as a public spokescandy, and chose the Super Bowl as the best place to make her presence known.
