OK, last year M&Ms ran an ad during the SuperBowl introducing their new bar, with a commercial starring Christina Applegate. The last few months I’ve noticed the same commercial, only with a different actress, and I thought I was going nuts. Same script, same footage, same animations, just different actress for no apparent reason. Searches online turned up nothing, which is weird because I figured somebody would have wondered about the switch and mentioned it.
I finally found proof I’m not crazy. I found the commercial in question with the new actress online – except it’s in Spanish. I still can’t find an English version of this commercial online.
I’m guessing they only paid Applegate for a limited run of the commercial, and are now using a less expensive actress? Does that make sense?
