This ad is a huge overpromise of adding "a little hell" to your lonely soup. These crackers get all mushy and tasteless in the soup. Now if they were a new line extension of spicey, stay-crunchy crackers, well then I could live with the projectile vomiting.

Seems like they really liked the bravia paint ad.

I like it. It's really cool. Does seem very realistic that the crackers splash the soup that high. Looks very cool though.

The bravia one was way better... they tried to do something like it but they did not achieved it.

People who think Bravia was the first brand to use splish splashing fluids are people who need to get out more.
Bravia wasn't the first. This cracker spot won't be the last. Get over yourselves.

Poor washed up, obsolete creatives, just because your client may not have seen the Bravia commercial, doesn't mean it's o.k to blatantly rip-off award winning creative. Typical close minded mentality. Others will notice. Not to take away from the brilliant work done by the D.O.P and the effects team. Great work.

Is "plargo" actually one of the creatives defending his own work? Hmmmmmmmm....

Put a dress & lipstick on a monkey, it's still the same monkey.

sad... not the ad... but most of you guys... focussed on 1 ad for Bravia... So what if a similar technique is used... Bravia was all about colours, this isn't!

Is this some sort of celebration? the fact that crackers go well with soup?

why is the soup projectile vomitting when the crackers make contact with it then?

Everyone here is shooting down this ad because it's a "bravia copy". Forget about that, splish splash ads have been done before bravia, but using this technique with NO CONCEPT whatsoever is what bothers the hell out of me.

I just want to throw up every time I see it. I used to buy Premium Plus crackers. Now I just don't go down the isle!

Projectile vomit has never sold me on anything. Interesting that despite the package appearing everywhere, the first time I saw the ad, I was riveted by the vomit/soup and went looking for the ad on the internet by googling soup adverts. I had no idea it was a cracker ad. That tells you something right there, doesn't it?

I thought the ad just screamed sick child vomiting up canned soup. I am thankful that I don't eat canned soup, but I'm not sure I'll be able to even walk down the soup aisle without evoking nasty childhood memories. My throat feels all biley and acidic just thinking about it.

Big Fat Fail for an ok cracker product.

I hate the Premium Plus Cracker Commercial, yes soup goes with crackers and they are very good, but the soup looks like spewing vomit, not a good image when you want to buy crackers or soup, not a good effect. Makes me sick to my stomach everytime I see it. Very Gross! Maybe next time no spewing soup, I think that would still get your point across. Good luck next time!
