Last year, Skittles made game day "awesomer" for NFL fans and players through an integrated campaign that culminated in the brand's inaugural Super Bowl ad. Skittles opted to "Settle It" in a commercial that featured a small town full of people with abnormally muscular right arms.

In the ad, two men enjoyed a bowl of Skittles and when it comes down to the last lemon Skittles candy, they "settle it" with an arm wrestling match. This year, the brand plans to make Super Bowl 50 even more awesome with another unexpected commercial produced by DDB Chicago.

"We had an amazing rookie Super Bowl experience, so we're thrilled to be back," said Matt Montei, Senior Marketing Director, Confections and Seasonal at Wrigley. "Once again, we have dozens of awesome integrated activities planned for our Super Bowl party this year with the ad serving as our grand finale."

Details of the Skittles Super Bowl 2016 ad have not been disclosed.

Super Bowl 50 will take place on February 7,  2016, in Santa Clara, at the Levi's Stadium. The stadium is the home of the home of the San Francisco 49ers. Super Bowl 50 will be topping all previous Super Bowl's because of the anniversary. Marketers are flocking to Super Bowl 50 and it will be a huge TV event.
