GALLERY 20: Cadbury Fingers - Thumb Like It Hot

In a bid to refresh this classic British biscuit brand, this entertaining ad is aimed at adults and children. Our hearts go out to the lonesome thumb who yearns to be a finger, so much so that he goes to Malaga to attain the requisite chocolate tan in the hope of resembling one. A thumb casting took place with more than 50 of them eagerly wanting the job. Once in the shoot in Malaga, the perfect thumb had a make-up artist and even a masseuse.
