Highdive and Airheads launch new campaign Airheads Have More Fun

Highdive Advertising and Airheads launched the new Airheads Have More Fun campaign across a multitude of platforms, including Hulu, Roku, and more.

The campaign is directed by renowned creative director, Harry Einstein of Dummy Films, who is known for his memorable and unconventional commercials for clients like Crest and Kayak. Highdive and Airheads were last seen making headlines with the Airheads Candy Chicken Sandy in 2021.

“Where there’s Airheads Candy, play isn’t far behind. People have always played with Airheads. Shaking the bars to make them into a ball or shaping them like putty,” says Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer at Highdive, Chad Broude. “This gives us license to be a little hyperbolic, showing that people who eat Airheads have more fun — making for out there, memorable work.”





As a society we play less and less. And even the things we consider play now have some sort of competition element to it.

The new campaign is all about how people who eat Airheads just have more fun. But taking it to new hyperbolic heights. In one spot a couple of cowboys look on mystified as another cowboy trots in eating Airheads riding a hippo. In another spot a routine trip to the doctor turns into the doctor playing his kid patient like a drum set.

“At the core of Airheads Candy has always been a playful spirit. And we wanted a campaign that reminds people of that. It’s about the true spirit of play. Imaginative, carefree, just for the fun of it play,” states Craig Cuchra, VP of Marketing for Perfetti Van Melle.
