This is an odd series of ads. But, again they catch the eye.

I want to be the crazy scientists. I should stop eating Snickers.

I didn't get it. Why a scientist, a granny and a cave man?

It's playing into their "you're not yourself when you're hungry" campaign. Though they should still have the headline.

I'm not crazy about the campaign though, it just doesn't say chocolate bar.

It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.

It means: 'You're not yourself when you're hungry'. When you unwrap and eat a Snickers you become yourself.

But graphically, the (bad) unwrapping Mad scientist, Granny and Apeman are equated with the (good) unwrapping Snickers packaging, making the idea an almost but not quite.

A brilliant execution of their current campaign. But as evinced by the criticisms here, it could've benefited from having the line there.

Definitely needs the line, but then again, some people might actually want to be a mad scientist or caveman just to see what it's like.
