Create the Rainbow

Agency Network: 
December 2012


This Holiday season, Skittles wanted to make the quirkiest, most unique Holiday commercial ever. So they decided to get the quirkiest, most unique people they know to make it for them - their fans. That's why, instead of making a traditional commercial, we developed a video-based website giving Skittles fans the power to create their own Skittles Holiday commercial. People can go to and start building their own commercial by choosing characters, a background setting and a Skittles miracle. They can then create the story by choosing from 25 lines of dialogue and 10 different actions. Finally, they can personalize their masterpiece with their name in the classic Skittles end sequence that we’ve all become so familiar with. All in all, there's over a quintillion different possibilities.

Digital advertisment created by BBDO, Canada for Skittles, within the category: Confectionery, Snacks.

I did a VERY quick run. Result was awful but the sentiment was nice and perhaps with more effort result would be good.

Curious to know others' experiences.
