Moxie Pictures director Martin Granger reminds us that not all walrus boyfriends look the same in the comical :15/:30 “Walrus” for Skittles out of DDB, Chicago.  The spot features a seemingly deceived woman catching her BFF making out with what appears to be her own walrus boyfriend.

“Walrus” opens on a brunette woman walking in on a blonde woman kissing a Jabba the Hut-sized walrus in her living room.  “This isn’t what it looks like,” says the blonde.  “Good, because it looks like you’re making out with my boyfriend,” replies the brunette.  “This isn’t Bobby.  He just looks like Bobby.  He said he’s like these new Skittles Riddles.  The colors on the outside don’t match the flavors on the inside.  Like this one: it’s green, but really it’s fruit punch.”  The blonde then proceeds to tease her flippered beau with the deceptive confection, followed by an all-tongue and tusk make out session.  The spot closes on a bag of Skittles Riddles and the tag, “Deceive the Rainbow.  Taste the rainbow.”
