BBDO Loves the 90s for Twix

On the EOD Throwback Thursday tip, BBDO launched a new campaign for client Twix today, drawing on those parts of the 90s that so many of us are trying to forget. Taglines:

“Your favorite bars, bite-sized”

“Why didn’t we think of these years ago?”

Now, remember when your phone and your Internet connection were inseparable…and not in a good way?

After the jump: how much canned food did you have stored in your basement on December 31st, 1999?

The campaign also features print spots like the one below — the phone number is apparently legit — and it will include a social component. Earlier clips for the client will air in tandem, with this one airing during the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards (which are still a thing)!

And now we feel really old.
