Mr. T Uses Hidden Cameras to Correct Rudeness in Bizarre Snickers Commercials [videos]


There's a new Snickers campaign in the UK featuring Mr. T in which the A-Team star implores British youth to quit being so rude and "get some nuts." In the commercials, "Mr. T CTV" cameras film teenagers being obnoxious in a variety of ways, who are then admonished over loudspeaker by Mr. T, hidden in a bunker somewhere. A commentary on the Big Brother-ish modern-day English CCTV police state, the connection to the actual Snickers candy bar is tenuous at best, the only link being the "Get Some Nuts" tagline.

There's also a contest in which you can submit videos of people being "fools." The biggest fool gets £1000, which seems sort of against Mr. T's whole politeness campaign. Then again, the whole thing is pretty ridiculous, including Mr. T's awesome Snickers ammo belt.
