The teaser for M&Ms' Super Bowl advert has a "Watch or else" feel to it. What will happen to Yellow on game day? And do we even care?


Is this a "If we don't get so many thousand shares on game day then you can expect a finger through the door" kind of deal?

So far this is a little underwhelming, to the point that we're not sure we'd pay even a small ransom for the safe return of Yellow. But if past M&Ms' advertising is anything to go by then we could be in store for something pretty amusing.
