Mr T heads to the UK in Snickers teaser ad

LONDON - Mr T is making a return to TV screens in a third outing for Snickers, but this time he's headed to the UK.

The full TV ad breaks on March 1 but Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO has created a teaser campaign to highlight his journey.

The 30-second teaser, which breaks on TV on February 22, sees T sitting in a shed in front of a row of mismatched TVs, spying on people around the globe to ensure that nobody is being a "fool".

However, when he spots a man who winces when he dips his toe into a swimming pool, T's fool alert goes off and he storms towards his helicopter swearing that he is going come to the UK to sort him out.

The ad finishes with the dates of the "get some nuts UK tour", when the man himself will be visiting this country.
