For Tax Day, BBDO Tells the True Story of a Woman Who Tried to Write Off a Snickers Bar

It didn't go over so well

Tax Day isn't usually a time for great brand creativity, but BBDO New York goes the extra mile this year with a short documentary about an Arizona woman who tried to write off a Snickers bar in 2005.

She was audited, and the authorities took a dim view of her audacity.

Also, it's a true story. BBDO found the woman's case online, pitched her the concept and flew to her hometown in Arizona to shoot the film.
