Kinder Surprise - Give Some Surprise Back Despicable Me 3 Toys. The advertisement is for Kinder Surprise chocolate, containing toys from the very recent children’s movie Despicable Me 3.

The advertisement is a 15 second film clip showing a young child engaged in an activity while seated at the family coffee table. The words ‘your kids never stop surprising you’ are flashed briefly on the screen. The young child is then presented with a Kinder Surprise chocolate. He is shown to express delight when he sees the Kinder Surprise chocolate, mouthing what appears to be the word ‘WOW’. The words ‘give some surprise back’ then flash briefly on the screen. The child is then shown eating the chocolate, while still seated at the coffee table and playing a game with his parent. Up to this point, there is a musical background but no voice over. At the 10 second mark, the advertisement changes, to become a cartoon showing a character from the Despicable Me 3 movie, followed by the banner for the movie including its title, the words ‘Now Showing’ and the image of the minion characters from the movie. While these cartoon images are shown, the advertisement includes voice over which says ‘enter the world of Despicable Me with Kinder Surprise. Discover the ten new toys.’ At the same time, there are sounds coming from the minion characters. The final scene shows a cartoon with three Kinder Surprise chocolate eggs, each with a character from the Despicable Me 3 movie on the packaging, and four additional characters surrounding the products.
