Feeling the Munchies at Night This Month? This Snack Brand Has Got Your Back

Granola offers a little #NightAssistance through April

Just in time for 4/20 (the unofficial holiday for lightin' a blunt), French biscuit maker Granola is taking on the munchies.

"Late Night Drama" is an ad for Granola Night Assistance, which will enable late-night fridge-rovers to score a Granola bar, wherever they may be, between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. through the month of April.

Created by agency Marcel, the operatic ad features youths engaging in nighttime shenanigans of varying weirdness, only to be stopped in their tracks by the dreaded rumbly in their tumblies. Trippily enough, the ad reveals that the background music is sung by a cartoon stomach on TV … just before a disembodied hand of God penetrates the night sky to offer our hungry heroes a giant Granola bar.

No, we're not high. But the creative team probably was!

"Big nights call for big munchies," the ad concludes, before pushing #NightAssistance, which will be available throughout the French market. (This might not seem like a big deal to you, but finding food in France at night is like pulling teeth out of the mouth of a live shark. While stoned.) 

It's not totally clear how #NightAssistance works—probably because it isn't nighttime yet. There's a section on the website where you can find Granola bars for sale based on your city and what day it is, as well as a "talking" stomach that you can chat with, which so far has just said things like, "Go back and live with your mom." (We're assuming he'll be more useful when night falls.)

The film was directed by Trevor Clarence of Blue Production, and will be supported by Facebook and Twitter activations.
