Skittles Returns with Cute and Cloudy Spots Cut by Whitehouse Post

Whitehouse Post Editor John Smith cuts a trio of playful spots for Skittles via DDB Chicago. The spots, directed by Chris Palmer of Gorgeous, feature an elderly woman accompanying her fantastical Pet Cloud through mundane situations including a visit to the vet, a walk around the neighborhood, and a trip to the groomer.

The imaginative spots features some similar and unique elements of previous Skittles spots including quirky characters and bold, yet stark color palettes. The Cloud, which is as fickle as a toy poodle, rains Skittles when it’s happy and shoots bolts of lightning if it’s even a bit displeased.
