BBDO, Twix Encourage More Right Twix Vs. Left Twix Feuding

BBDO’s latest spot in its feudal Twix campaign, “Break Room,” continues to stoke the feud between left and right Twix.

In the spot, a worker in the left Twix factory wonders what a right Twix tastes like. As he takes a bite, a camera zooms in on him and a tube ejects him from the factory, presumably to the right Twix factory. Viewers are encouraged to “Try both. Pick a side.” I’d like to see a more in-depth discussion of the differences between the left and right Twix factories. Are the factory conditions really all that different? Is one more sanitary than the other? Who started this feud? Come on Twix, give us something to work with here.

This fight-stoking campaign seems flat out irresponsible. Why do you have to give us something to fight about, Twix? This could lead to ongoing feuds that rival the east coast vs. west coast battles of the 90s. Can’t we all just get along? Credits after the jump.  Read more

Chris Paul Bumps into ‘Cliff Paul’ in Latest State Farm Spot

L.A. Clippers All-Star point guard Chris Paul got plenty of airtime yesterday beyond his team’s beatdown of the Denver Nuggets.Thanks to this latest effort for State Farm, which this time comes to us from Translation and director Craig Gillespie (the guy who helmed Lars and the Real Girl and the Fright Night remake), we learn that Paul has an identical twin brother who happened to accidentally get separated from him at birth. Though the pair take two different career paths, with “Cliff Paul” becoming a State Farm rep (of course) their fundamentals remain the same. At the very least, this cute installment for the insurance brand (wait for the twins’ brief reunion at the end) gives poor Aaron Rodgers a breather from more kids’ heckling–at least for now. Credits after the jump. Read more
