McCain
'Pockets'
25 March 2024 50s
Don't stop me.
by Jason Stone

This artful trio of commercials by Adam & Dave suggest that nothing should get in the way of the advertised snack. Three movie tropes are used to demonstrate this... and our favourite is the first one which has a young woman being distracted by a McCain Pocket even as she tries to outrun a maniac in a cornfield.

The great skill of all three executions lies in the perfect balance between taking the peril seriously and lightheartedly stepping out of it for a moment or two. This is a tricky idea to get across in just 15" and it's a testimony to the performances coaxed by the directing duo that the ads pull this off so successfully.
