NEW! A Skittles Kiss Becomes A Toothless Grin For One Teen

skittlesDDB Chicago launched a 15-second TV spot for Skittles that will change the way you think of a toothless grin. In “Smile,” two teenage girls wonder why their classmate Louis never smiles. One gal sneaks up behind Louis and tickles him, causing a smile to appear. And this isn’t just any smile; Louis’ teeth are made of Skittles. Seizing the day, the girl goes in for a big kiss and grabs a mouthful of Skittles, leaving Louis with one orange tooth. I’m not surprised -- orange is my least favorite Skittles flavor, too. Watch the ad here.
