SKITTLES’ Super Bowl Ad by DDB Worldwide is Broadway Bound

In 2019, instead of running a 30-second ad during Super Bowl LIII, SKITTLES is creating the first-ever commercial performed as a live Broadway musical.

Skittles Commercial: The Broadway Musical” is written by playwright and Pulitzer finalist Will Eno in partnership with DDB Worldwide. The 17-member cast, led by a soon-to-be-announced celebrity, will perform the show one time only, in front of a live audience at The Town Hall in New York City on Sunday, February 3 at 1 p.m. EST. The show will also feature original songs backed by a live band.

Tickets to the live performance are on sale and available to the public at Ticket proceeds will be donated to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS—a nonprofit organisation that awards annual grants that help men, women and children in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C., receive lifesaving medications, health care, nutritious meals, counselling and emergency assistance. SKITTLES will also match this donation.

“We’re always looking for opportunities to innovate and entertain our fans in new ways around football’s biggest stage,” said Debbie Litow, Brand Director, SKITTLES. “And what better way to do that this year than by bringing our ad to the world’s most famous stage: Broadway.”

SKITTLES is known for taking a unique approach to the big game. Last year, the brand created a highly exclusive ad that was shown to only one person.

Stay tuned as SKITTLES reveals details about “Skittles Commercial: The Broadway Musical” throughout the month leading up to the live performance on February 3.
