Robert Downey Jr. gets nutty as Mr. Peanut

Mr-peanut

Robert Downey Jr. continues to get more work than you can shake a Victorian cane at, this time providing the first-ever voice of Mr. Peanut in the new Planters spot below. The work (and its associated Facebook page) recasts the dapper spokesman as a festive and feisty socialite. It's the brand's first work from TBWA spinoff shop Being, which won the account from Draftfcb last spring. And while everyone seems to be excited that the monocled mascot is finally talking, I'm far more relieved that he's finally wearing some damn clothes.
