It's better if it doesn't show the product at the beginning, right?

Very funny. And it's basically the "pleasure together" eternal brief. You can always have something fresh out of nothing, after all.

Temple is right. This is a nice take on the x meets y 'combo' brief. Nicely directed, and nice they chose 'character' rather than 'model' talent.

The description is both funnier and more suggestive than the ad though:

'a lonely bachelor gets his Oaty Bar frosted with chocolate by the neighboring spinster.'

Now that would have been funny.
