Stop (Nicking My Crisps)

by Syd Briscoe

Walkers: “Superfan” - 90s

M J Delaney is no stranger to girl power, having technically worked with Sporty, Ginger, Baby, and Scary on a repurposed version of their 90's hit 'Wannabe' for Project Everyone. Now, the director returns for a more lighthearted romp with the group for Walkers - in which the Spice Women surprise an avid supporter with a visit.

The performances of said fan and his elderly mother make the ad, as his intense enthusiasm quickly sours when the stars attempt to share his crisps. A montage of shocked reactions from around the globe - including Gogglebox's Malone clan - is handled with great attention to detail, and the final shot of the group's newest member provides a lovely sting in the tail. Posh, eat your heart out.
