If you’ve been watching TV lately, you may have seen the new Cheetos commercial featuring Mila Kunis and her husband, Ashton Kutcher. In the commercial, Kutcher sings custom lyrics from Shaggy’s hit song; “It Wasn’t Me,” about how he has repeatedly “caught” Kunis eating all of the Cheetos in different locations of their house.
Shaggy even makes a guest appearance in the extended version of the commercial to tie it all together. The commercial brings together one of Hollywood’s biggest power couples, a favorite snack among Americans, and an “oldie but a goodie” song from the 2000s.

In this blog, Hollywood Branded will look at how songs became important parts of commercials, examples of other brands who re-wrote songs, and how your brand can take advantage of this beneficial, advertising strategy.
