Regardless of the product (if it's the chocolate bar, than I don't see any connection)I think this is a beautiful art direction here on this campaign. In fact I like it's cut but then they should take the blank space off...

Can someone please tell me if they are selling clothes or chocolate ? Wait, they're probably just selling an attitude .... mmmm.

ok, cool photo, but that's it, appart from that I have no clue what this is about.

i like these for vans or etnies. or possible mountain dew. way too forced for snickers.

i don't think you can drastically change your image overnight after 70 years. it has to be a gradual evolution. or else people will call bull shit.

If us ad wankers don't get this, what chance do the faithful chocolate consumers have??

3 typographers? They forgot to credit the work experience kid and the cleaners.

I have no idea what's going on here and I'm not prepared to spend one more second trying.

Feels like more of a clothing ad and less about the snack. Intentional possibly.
