Haynes Baked Beans

(YouTube link)

This may be the best ad of the year- it has astronauts, an alien monster, violence, and humor! The strange thing is that it's not an ad for Haynes Baked Beans, which does not exist, but for Cinesite, the special effects company that produced it. I mean, you have to admit the effects are awesome. Too bad you would never get a real food company to take this kind of memorable approach in a TV ad. -via Warming Glow

There's an obvious resemblance between the Haynes Beans label and that of Heinz Baked Beans, the number one brand in the UK and more iconic than Heinz Ketchup over there. For a long time, their slogan was "Heinz Meanz Beanz" and they even occasionally changed the spelling on the label to "Beanz". B&M? Bush's? Your average Brit never heard of 'em.
