Mars candy brand gets the Hollywood treatment, with action movie spot for the Oscars

M&M's plays tribute to the Oscars with an action movie-style ad that continues the adventures of the Mars brand's "spokescandy" characters.

The ad by BBDO New York draws on tropes seen in action movies such as secret files, a countdown clock, and the angry cop interviewing a suspect.

The ad, which ran in cinemas last year, will be making its TV debut during the 87th annual Academy Awards on Sunday.
