Candy for the eyes … and ears

Editor TVCs, News Make a Comment

The dancing jaffas in the chocolate fusion cookup in DDB’s new TVC for Cadbury are eye-catching enough to cut through the TV clutter. But what gives this commercial a real edge are the perfect match of the visuals with the smooth, breezy, melodic soundtrack emanating from Wellington progressive indie rock band the Phoenix Foundation.

The product is Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate Jaffas. The ad is called Made by Music. Which says it all.

If you let the Youtube reel run, you’ll also see a clip of last week’s spectacular Cadbury Jaffa race – 75,000 individually numbered Jaffas let loose at the top of Dunedin’s Baldwin St, reputed to be the steepes street in the world..
