HACKETTSTOWN, N.J., Aug. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Mars Chocolate North America released a new DOVE® Chocolate Brand television commercial to empower fans to enjoy every moment of life with no regrets – even a moment as small as biting into a piece of silky smooth DOVE® Chocolate. Featuring the timeless voice and lyrics of Edith Piaf's "Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien," ("No, I Do Not Regret Anything"), the song serves as an anthem to live life to its fullest.
Developed by BBDO New York, the new 60 second commercial titled "Each and Every Day" aims to inspire viewers to pursue life's everyday pleasures with no regrets. The commercial follows one woman's entire life in the context of one day, from when she was young through her twilight years, as she lives without inhibitions since she is able to wake up and do it all over again each morning.
"Edith Piaf's lyrics of enjoying life without regret are as true today as they were when she first performed the song," said Kerry Cavanaugh, Brand Director, DOVE® Chocolate Brand. "We all need to be reminded to take a moment to savor life's everyday pleasures, big or small, like unwrapping and enjoying the signature taste of DOVE® Chocolate."
The new commercial will run on a variety of television networks and digital platforms, but also can be found on the DOVE® Chocolate YouTube Channel. For more information about DOVE® Chocolate, visit Dovechocolate.com , Dovechocolatejourney.com, Facebook and Twitter.
