M&M’s commercial circa 1955 based on 16mm edge code. Probably never aired, possibly never submitted for consideration. Research has been fruitless.
If companies would pay millions to air commercials like this during the Super Bowl, then yeah, I might watch it “for the commercials,” as so many say (but couldn’t possibly be serious, could they?).
And speaking of M&M’s, weren’t they better back in the day (the 80s) when the color palette was limited to dark brown, light brown, orange, yellow, and green? The red and blue ones look wrong.
