How many times have you seen this ad? (2014)

M & M-Mars premiered this ad for M & M's candies during this year's Super Bowl, but I'll bet you've seen this at least a few dozen more times since, depending on how often you're at the multiplex.

This spot precedes the trailers and is, in fact, a parody of some of those trailers, which makes Ford's summer campaigns last year and this year look like vanity dressing.

Need I say more?

I've never seen this - but I like it!

Remember the good ol' days when we didn't have to bear through commercials at the movies? It's only one of many reasons why I rarely go these days.

I've seen the Ford commercials you describe but I think they work since they're spoofing the trailers we see both on TV and theatres. It shows how empty they are and essentially tell the entire story in a 30 second clip!

I think the addition of the commercials is part of the reason ticket prices have gone up. Greed never ceases.

The Ford ads, to me, while also a mockery, are played into the ground and become stale rather quickly.
