While this commercial is not A+ material, we respect that the teaser for the Butterfinger Cups commercial was a direct lead-in to the ad itself. And also, as we unabashedly stated weeks ago, we can’t wait to try this candy, it just sounds amazing.
The Butterfinger Cups Super Bowl ad takes a not-too-subtle shot at Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups by showing a couple consisting of a man with a shirt that says Peanut Butter and woman with a Chocolate shirt in couple’s therapy. Their lives have grown boring… stale… but then…
In comes Butterfinger in the form of an energetic guy wearing a bright yellow track suit! Excitement all around… um… in the form of back rubs.
Anyway, the spot works, because we want that damn candy!
