M&M’s commercials have always been known for being funny, but one that’s playing now in national TV markets has to be one of the candymaker’s best.
The M&M’s commercial “You Get in the Bowl” shows a couple relaxing at home, watching some TV. The woman tells her man she could “go for a snack.” When he slides open a kitchen cupboard, the little band of M&M’s inside try to hold him off by pelting him with cans and fruit.
The exasperated man holds up a bowl and tells the candies to get in. After a beat or two, a piece of bread comes flying out and smacks him in the face, and one of the M&M’s says, “You get in the bowl.”
If the M&M’s commercial inspires you to pick up some bags of candy, there could be an extra treat involved. Mars Chocolate, the brand’s owner, is sponsoring a contest and giving away free trips to next year’s Super Bowl.
All you have to do is go to www.BeontheField.com and enter the UPC code from packages of M&M’s, Snickers and other Mars Brands. The grand prize is four tickets – and transportation and lodging – to Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis in 2012, along with a chance to celebrate on the field with the winning team.
The deadline for entering the contest is Feb. 7, the day after this year’s game. Meanwhile, check out the M&M’s commercial “Get in the Bowl” over on the left.
