Skittles Life at High School
Wrigley is continuing the Skittles Rainbow advertising campaign with three new commercials set in the challenging setting of life at high school. The Life at High School campaign shows Skittles-afflicted teenagers in Bleachers, Cranky and Mentor as they come to terms with the desire of their peers to contract, crank or pluck the Rainbow.
Warning signs of a Skittles pox outbreak include Rainbow colors, increased dating prospects and loud “Mmmm” sounds from the afflicted. Contract the Rainbow. Taste the Rainbow.® Click on the image below to play the Bleachers video.
Skittles dispensers have feelings, too! Crank the Rainbow. Taste the Rainbow.® Click on the image below to play the Cranky video.
It’s not a unibrow. It’s a Rainbow. Pluck the Rainbow. Taste the Rainbow.® Click on the image below to play the Mentor video.
