Philosophie Captain Fantastic Elton John, best known for captivating audiences with bitter sweet ballads and world-conquering anthems, is back with a bang in a new multi-million pound Snickers ad campaign, as you’ve never seen him before. The clever new ad, out September 1st, sees Elton venture into the hip hop genre as the personification of American artist, Boogie amidst a rap battle, when he’s lost his edge due to hunger. The film kicks off at a house-party with an MC battle featuring up-coming talent, Emarr Kuhomano and Monique Lawz, before Elton steps up to the plate wearing his iconic red glitter jacket and glasses. Out of place in a cipher, Elton lets rip one of his biggest hits ‘Don’t go breaking my heart’, whilst the crowd look puzzled. Oxford-born UK rapper Femi Nylander takes matters into his own hands, getting the beat back on track by offering Elton a Snickers bar - wherein the real Boogie returns on form. The campaign was created by AMVBBDO, and directed by the incredibly talented and award-winning music video director Andreas Nilsson. Anne Batz and her team at Talent Republic collaborated with Mars Wrigley Confectionery UK and AMVBBDO on the campaign and were pivotal in securing the stellar line-up of talent. It will air in 60 and 30 second cinema and TV spots from Saturday September 1st across the UK, US, Germany and Russia. Additional behind the scenes content and unseen video snippets will be released over the next few days, available to view via the Snickers website www.snickers.co.uk or the Snickers Facebook channel. Boogie, who is signed with Eminem’s Shady Records, will release a music video for his upcoming single “DE JA VU” also shot by Andreas Nilsson in the same location. The promo, sees the camera loop through set over and over again to create a déjà vu effect. “De Ja Vu” will be used as the soundtrack to a series of Snickers Instagram stories and YouTube pre-rolls containing bespoke content and will also get an exclusive feature on Elton John’s Apple BEATS by Dre podcast “Rocket Hour”. The social-first approach also uses Instagram swipe up videos incorporating Elton John’s “Don’t go breaking my heart” lyrics to create additional hip-hop content. This latest ad builds on the advertising campaigns previously spearheaded by celebrities Joan Collins, Stephanie Beacham, and Rowan Atkinson as Mr Bean – in which we saw Mr Bean as a particularly ill-suited Kung Fu Master.
