Elton John Enters The Rap Scene In New Snickers® Ad

 

CHICAGO, Aug. 30, 2018 

Captain Fantastic Elton John, best known for captivating audiences with bittersweet ballads and world-conquering anthems, is back with a bang in a new SNICKERS® ad – but not as you’ve seen him before. The clever new ad, out September 1, 2018, 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-and-coming talent, Emarr Kuhomano and Monique Lawz, before Sir 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,” humorously cringing the crowd. 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.

“Most people already know I’ve long been an advocate of hip hop and that’s why I wanted be a part of this – I got to hang out with Boogie and some great hip hop talent from the UK too,” said Elton John. “Moreover, I love the direction the new SNICKERS® ads have humorously portrayed being off your game when you’re hungry, but in a way that’s current and relevant to young people, especially considering hip hop is one of the biggest music genres in the world today.”

“Building on the ‘You’re Not You When You’re Hungry’ theme, which has connected so well with consumers, we’re glad to see this latest installment take the story a step further, said Dale Green, SNICKERS® Global Brand Director. “When we developed the rap battle concept, we knew Elton Johnwould be the perfect fit to help bring this to life. His unique blend of music, style and humor is instantly recognizable around the world and works well with our SNICKERS® brand.”

Boogie, who is signed with Eminem Shady Records, says: “Working with Elton on the set of the new SNICKERS® ad was everything I expected and more – he’s generous with his time, funny and fantastically talented! Between him and fresh new hip hop talent like Femi Nylander, Emarr Kuhomano and Monique Lawz – it was an incredible coming together of multi-talented people.”

This latest ad builds on the ‘Locker Room’ SNICKERS® spot, which launched in 2012, featuring Joan Collins and Stephanie Beacham, and the ‘Mr. Bean Kung-Fu Master’ ad from 2014.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
