Dunkin' Donuts is on a roll, with a pair of new coffee-pushing comedy campaigns. In the "Hidden Camera" spots, a parody of the old Taster's Choice gimmick, Dunkin' employees "secretly replace" people's coffees by making imbecilically obvious commando raids on unsuspecting consumers, via airhorn diversions, elevator drop-ins and the always reliable toppling a tray-carrying waiter - the latter proving yet again that some sight gags never grow old. See this month's Special Report for Alison Maclean's "Voiceover" campaign.
