You might have seen some Snickers ads over your lifetime and are probably familiar with the "You're Not You When You're Hungry" joke by now.

Someone is very hungry, turns into a hilariously weak counterpart of themselves, eats a Snickers bar and voila! Energy restored!

Now, Snickers UK has roped in comedy icon Mr. Bean, played by British actor Rowan Atkinson, to star in its latest "You're Not You When You're Hungry" campaign.

Atkinson, in his first ad since the 1990s, stars as a Kung Fu master who is not feeling his usual self until he eats a Snickers bar. The 60-second ad is the latest execution in the brand’s "you’re not you when you’re hungry" positioning.


In true Mr. Bean fashion, he attempts to channel Bruce Lee by trying his hand at nunchucks...

...and delivers an awkward and less-than-impressive performance of 'kata' kung fu.

He also gets a taste of the epic as he clumsily walks on rooftops...

...and slides over them, only to - surprise, surprise! - end up crashing through it.

But throw him a Snickers bar and everything is awesome again!
