Athenos: Greek Grannie Yiayia

Athenos: Greek Grannie Yiayia

Athenos dip sauce from Kraft Foods and New York’s creative agency Droga5 launched these two hilarious commercials. We promise you a good laugh.

The videos originally were shot in Greece. Both features an opinionated Greek grannie Yiayia. In the firs ad we can see a pool party and girls in their bikinis, enjoying picnic. The voice over the camera asks what Yiayia thinks about it. “It’s a pornography”, she shouts. Girls are confused and embarrassed.

In the second ad the woman is chatting with her husband on the web. What Yiayia thinks about it? “Have you married a machine? You are a sick women”. The only thing she approves is Athenos.

Watch these funny commercials and tell us if you liked them.
