Skittles Makes Me Smile... And Feel Awkward.

I love the Skittles commercials (created by DDB Chicago) and the newer spots makes me smile... and feel slightly dirty.. and well frankly like I've been visually accosted or confused.. giving me an uneasy feeling at times (and i love that). Check out the spots below... and take note on "Mentor".. it's the creepiest... reminds me of the older spot, man with a long beard, picking the skittles up with his beard then ever so delicately leading them up and into his mouth. Awkward and amazing all at the same time.

"MENTOR"


"CRANKY"


"BLEACHERS"
