‘Biscuits Aren’t Working’ marks the final days of the General Election campaign by reimagining the Conservative Party’s 1979 poster, replacing the straplines with baking-related messaging.

The brand espouses that ‘life is better with cake’, positioning biscuits as their woeful rivals.

Taking inspiration from Apple's Siri, Snickers has developed recently its new voice recognition tool.

It only becomes helpful once the brand’s name shows up in the search results, emphasising the campaign's strapline.
