Editor's Pick

McVities, the UK snack company, appeals to people's seemingly unending appetite for cute small creatures with a new 12 million pound campaign to promote its various different biscuit brands. The ads, by Grey London, feature adorable kittens, puppies and a big-eyed gremlin-type creature (apparently a long-haired tarsier) emerging as people unwrap a pack of biscuits, to evoke the feeling of "sweet"ness that comes with a comforting snack break. The ads are (somewhat incongruously) set to music from classic British shows such as Fawlty Towers and 80s quiz show Blockbuster; no matter, because the LOLcats fans will surely love this whatever the soundtrack. They were directed by Owen Trevor at Passion RAW.
