M&M's colorful spots

Published on .

M&M/Mars Co. this week breaks a campaign by BBDO, New York, featuring actress Tia Carrere that will air on network TV, MTV: Music Television and Turner Broadcasting. The spots feature M&M's spokescharacters Red, Yellow and Blue in humorous situations with Ms. Carrere, who was in Wayne's World'' and ``True Lies.'' One spot dubbed ``Chocolate Bar'' shows Ms. Carrere lounging poolside with Red and Yellow when a chocolate bar struts over to the group. While Red and Yellow tout that their ``candy-coated shell is better than sunscreen,'' the chocolate bar melts all over the lounge chair and becomes a ``pathetic puddle.''
