Un-pea-dictable: Veggie-based snack ad has multiple plot twists

It's a romance. No, it's a hidden-camera show. No, it's just a dream. No, it's a ghost story. No, it's a fun ad by Wolk BKK for Calbee snack-food brand BunBun.

The video above is an ad for BunBun, a pea-based snack food from Calbee, by Thailand agency Wolf BKK.

But it takes a while to reveal itself as that, and has some fun playing with tropes before it does so. It's not just clever for clever's sake either; the ad's form aligns with the brand's message that the snack "ain't what it seems". 

To that point, Ad Nut also appreciates that the ad directly addresses what is apparently an issue for the brand. A character in the ad proclaims, "It's not tasty, don't buy it", but is then proved wrong as a disembodied hand stuffs the snack into his mouth and he finds it delicious.

Clever, fun, fearless. Ad Nut likes.

And yes, Ad Nut just raved about another campaign from Wolk BKK last week (see "These two are close, but not loaning-money close"). What can Ad Nut say? Ad Nut's not going to ignore something good just because the agency happened to also have something good a week ago. And other agencies are welcome to send in a string of standout creative work too.
