A guy swipes a handful of Skittles from a giant hourglass and, in so doing, escalates a time-warping effect on his flatmate, in a new spot for the chewy sweets.
Created by TBWA\Chiat\Day New York, the surreal follow-up to spots such as "touch" focuses on two flatmates, one of whom owns an hourglass filled with Skittles. Whenever a Skittle is removed from the device it magically speeds up time for the owner.
After spotting his friend stealing Skittles from the jar and eating them, the man admonishes his flatmate for going against his order not to eat from the hourglass. But his friend carries on regardless, forcing his flatmate rapidly into old age.
The voiceover states: "Warp the rainbow, taste the rainbow."

Leo Burnett Lisbon is running a print campaign to promote the controversial UK show Skins, which will be showing on MTV Portugal.
Skins, which debuted on the UK's E4 channel, follows a group of teenagers leading hedonistic lifestyles, while their parents remain oblivious.
The campaign illustrates this parallel with two graphic posters titled "octabong" and "rainbow party".
Leo Burnett has also created an online banner, which sees angry parents invade the screen to berate the user in a bid to encourage youngsters to watch the show.

Wieden & Kennedy Amsterdam is launching a campaign for Tanqueray gin encouraging consumers to abandon "simple" drinks choices in favour of more original flavours.
The "resist simple" campaign is about people who make the effort to experience a more interesting life and veer away from the status quo, even in their choice of alcoholic beverage.
Tanqueray is hailed as the drink of choice for rebellious types in the ads, which claim that it is the kind of beverage that a guy who "talks his way backstage" would have.
The 15- and 30-second spots will air both online and on TV and will be supported by a print campaign.

In each execution, created by Young & Rubicam Peru, animated numbers are seen emerging from the mobile as the handset meets its maker.
The spots aim to remind viewers that Movistar allows consumers to keep their numbers, even if their phones are destroyed.
