ad of the week oreo vampire

Oreo is an established brand in the UK, so we no longer have to put up with cutesy American kids telling us how to eat them (in a disgusting ritual) in its advertising.

Now we’ve got the cream-licking lowdown, we’re being treated to this animated ad, which addresses what a vampire would do if given an Oreo. It’s based on an exceptionally twee, supremely irritating song by the band Owl City. Dracula might undergo a cookie conversion and start drinking milk instead of blood, they posit.

A long shot. (Most of us just ask “is this meant to be chocolate?” and reach for a Jaffa Cake.) Still, the ad’s visuals are good - it’s distinctive and fun, with rather an appealing star (considering his undeadness). Just watch it on mute.
