A gravelly voice-over, a clandestine park bench meeting and a too-quick countdown to a big boom -- M&M's colorful characters re-enact scenes we've seen time and again in major motion pictures. Agency BBDO New York has a little fun putting the talking candy-covered chocolates in precarious situations, much to their dismay.
