Is the new Skittles advert, starring an old lady and her pet cloud, a return to the greatness of Touch the Rainbow?

Skittles keep up their quest for weirdness with their latest advert about a cloud that rains skittles. Seemingly the last six years of skittles adverts, and this ad is no different, have all been desperately trying to recreate the flash-in-the-pan excellence of Touch the Rainbow.

Freddy the cloud still isn’t in the same league as a guy who turns everything he touches into Skittles but it’s really enjoyable, The Vet and Groomer ads (below) are equally as good, we just wish real life offered the same sweety possibilities.
