A HISTORY OF SUPER BOWL SUCCESS
SNICKERS®, which is an official NFL sponsor, has a rich history of advertising during the Super Bowl. The brand debuted the very first "You're Not You When You're Hungry" commercial featuring Betty White during Super Bowl XLIV in 2010, which scored with both fans and media. Since then, SNICKERS® has featured dozens of celebrities and athletes around the world as part of the "You're Not You When You're Hungry" campaign, including Danny Trejo and Steve Buscemi in 2015.
The new commercial is part of a fully integrated 360 campaign to reinforce the brand's connection to hunger satisfaction throughout Super Bowl 51, various elements of which also will feature Driver.
