The Bear Necessities

by Syd Briscoe


Bear Yo Yo: “End The Nonsense” - 30s

Healthy snack brand Bear Yo Yo advocate scaring your children into silence with this amusing ad. A young girl on a long car ride demands snacks with increasing vehemence as her parents resist... until a furry friend steps in to make the noise stop.

It's a cute premise given a satisfying dark twist, as the brilliantly animated bear is implied to be no cuddly critter (although we did fear it was going to break into some Vanilla Ice for a second...). The performances are also nicely executed, from the weary dad to the obnoxious kid. Eye-catching work with a fairy tale flavour.
