This Mars Snack Brand Got Nonactors to Act in a Commercial, and the Results Are Pretty Funny

An appeal to embrace the new


To celebrate its one-year anniversary, Mars brand goodnessknows—a bite-sized snack made with fruit, nuts and dark chocolate—has released the "Try a Little Goodness" campaign. Created by BBDO San Francisco, it's work that both lobbies for novelty while appealing to the sense of derring-do and reinvention that characterizes the new year. 

Each ad encourages real people to try new things—for the brand, that is. Those efforts, both thwarted and successful, constitute the content. 

In the 80-second "Try Acting" video, a troupe of hopefuls try their hand at acting for a goodnessknows commercial shoot.
