They could have unwrapped it first, before tossing it in his mouth. Poor Godzilla. XD

That is hilarious.

If the movie is as awesome as that commercial, we're good.

EDIT. Ok, calmed down a little bit, but I still stand that thia is a very stupid thing to do, and that this will do more harm than good.

EDIT: WOOHOOO CENTENNIAL POST!!! :-)

 

That's taking it a little far Valkorin. 

Yes, the message of the commercial seems a little counter-intuitive to the one they they should probably be shooting for.

However, I think anyone who has seen either trailer, or encountered any other marketing for this movie is going to take that marketing more seriously than one Snickers ad.

Now if people's ONLY exposure to the film is this ad, yeah, it might undermine the message about the movie. 

However, it's still a little drastic to scream the sky is falling and calling for people to be fired, over what essentially boils down to some fun with a commercial.

My gosh Valkorin, calm your ass down. It's a Snicker's commercial, the heck do you expect?

Holy crap, thats a nice Godzilla suit.

 

Makes me kind of wish they would have used SOME kind of animatronic in the new film-- if only so we could see it. I don't hate that costume at all, its like a mixture of 84 Godzilla and the new Godzilla... Kinda wish this costume was a real thing. 

He is 350ft Tall people, those things on his neck ARE gills, and the Brazil photo is part of the final advertising design-- Deal with it.

@Valkorin

Way too overboard of reaction. If anything I think the tongue and cheekiness of this commercial grabs a different audience for the movie.

It shows Legendary isn't so uptight and dead-pan serious (like you're being). If you can't poke fun at yourself there's not much point in gaining an audience. That's exactly what's happening here. Although the movie itself is a "serious and dark" product, this ad works to acknowledge a broader side to Godzilla that could attract other people. Or at least get them interested.

Plus I'm not sure what you expect from Snickers commercial. Does anyone really think Snickers, Subway or some other company is going to do a dark, gritty, evil, nuclear holocaust Godzilla ad for their FOOD product? Hell no. That would just confuse audiences looking at the product.

Face it guys. The movie itself is dark and serious, but Godzilla gives off a much broader vibe than that. Embracing other facets of the franchise and playing them up seems like a wise idea to me.

Hahaha, yeah dude, they should really get to work penning some dark nuclear holocaust commercials. 

"Eat a Snickers NOW or Godzilla will eat your family!!!!" Great angle to grab the children's market :-)

 

"When all your loved ones are gone, and your home is a radioactive wasteland...there is one thing you can still count on.....Twinkies: Surviving Godzilla and pretty much everything else since 1647"

 

Being more serious for a minute...I do wish the commercial had SOMETHING to let people know that the movie isn't a rubber suit Godzilla movie. Like, they could have kept it the exact same, but at the end, put in even just a 1-2 second clip from the trailer....like Godzilla roaring while the doors are being closed on him....or something.

I understand the commercial was primarily harmless fun, but if you haven't seen the trailer, and your first knowledge of this movie came from that Snicker's commercial (which WILL be the case for some people) I think it's a weak first impression.

In any case, it's not a huge deal no matter how you slice it. It's important to keep perspective and not blow things out of proportion.

Ya know what madison, your right I shoud try penning a daek and gritty snicker's commercial, so here's the first draft.

So the commercial starts with me Sending out a hit on a smartass, and Godzilla's just sitting at home on his Ipad and recives the hit as well as the reward, a snicker's bar, obviously Godzilla accepts the offer and Atomic breath's the smartasses house, Godzilla then bring's me back the smartasses scorched remains, I do a DNA test to make shure it's the right smartass, and the test comes back as a match, now with the contract complete, I unwrap a snickers bar and toss it into Godzilla's mou and he walk's off into the sunset and Godzilla's theme starts playing as the screen fade's to black.

Wow I even suprise myself with great ideas.
