With the much-anticipated Super Bowl just around the corner, M&M’s has given sports fans a sneak peek into its upcoming campaign dedicated to the event. In an exciting collaboration, the renowned candy brand has joined forces with NFL Hall of Fame icons Dan Marino, Terrell Owens, and Bruce Smith, each of whom, despite their illustrious careers, fell short of clinching the coveted Super Bowl ring.
M&M’s Almost Champions Ring of Comfort
“The M&M’s Super Bowl LVIII campaign highlights the essence of sportsmanship for me – celebrating all players for the endless, demanding effort they put into their craft while enjoying the fun of the game.” said Hall-of-Famer Dan Marino. “Historically only one team walks away with a championship ring, but Mars’s inclusive message to inspire moments of happiness and to bring fun to everyone on and off the field really resonated with me. Just like the game itself, stay tuned for the ad’s full release as there are always some surprising twists.”
“I’m no stranger to laying it all out on the field and still not seeing those efforts result in a win. You’re not going to win every game in life, which is why you’ve got to remember to have fun through it all. I applaud M&M’S for making a point to offer fun and comfort to everyone — especially in such an unexpected way,” says Terrell Owens.
Recognizing the indomitable spirit and exceptional contributions of these “almost champions,” M&M’s has decided to celebrate their legacy in a unique and delectable way. Introducing the groundbreaking “M&M’s Almost Champions Ring of Comfort,” a one-of-a-kind creation that is bound to capture the attention of sports and candy enthusiasts alike.
