Snickers has told fans time and again that they are not themselves when they're hungry, and the motto has stuck. The temptation to eat the chocolatey candy is hard to resist when you're a bit peckish, and Snickers has teamed up with some big names to get their slogan across. Now, it looks like the brand has found a new celebrity to work with, and it is not someone fans ever thought they'd see.
Yes, that's right. In the weirdest news you will hear all day, Attack on Titan has teamed up with Snickers to promote the candy, and there is a whacky trailer out there which proves the tie-in is very real.
Over on Twitter, anime fans were stunned when they saw an official Attack on Titan x Snickers promo went live. The video, which can be seen above, shows off a scene from the anime's first season when the Colossal Titan peeks over the wall.
The trailer continues with Eren watching the Titan in shock, and the Colossal beast looks different. The character has been turned from its usual form into that of an older lady wearing makeup. Eren and Mikasa realized the Colossal Titan has changed forms because it isn't itself when it gets hungry. However, a few well-aimed Snickers manage to turn the Colossal Titan back to normal.
By the commercial's end, Attack on Titan fans are informed the reel was an advert for Snickers, and fans cannot help but laugh at the outlandish clip. The film implies Snickers can sustain a Titan but such logic goes against every lesson series creator Haime Isayama has taught. Now, fans are wondering what the candy might do to Eren when he's turned into the Attack Titan, so here's to hoping another commercial is released before long.
Did you ever expect a crossover like this to happen...? Let me know in the comments or hit me up on Twitter @MeganPetersCB to talk all things comics and anime!
Attack on Titan was originally created by Hajime Isayama, and the series has since been collected into 23 volumes as of 2017. It's set in a world where the last remnants of humanity live within a walled city in order to escape the danger of the Titans, a race of giants monsters that eats humans. The lead character, Eren Yeager, ends up joining the military with his two childhood friends Mikasa and Armin after the Titans break through the wall and attack his hometown. Now Eren, Mikasa, and Armin must survive in a world where they not only have the Titans to fear, but the very humans they are trying to save.
