The J.M. Smucker Company’s new cinematic-style ad campaign for 1850 Coffee features this tongue-in-cheek, two-minute film which positions the brew as “contraband caffeine.”

Andreas Nilsson of Biscuit Filmworks directed the piece, titled Quality That’s Criminal, for Publicis Groupe’s PSOne, an agency that tapped into the notion that 1850 Coffee is so pure, its taste level so high that it’s questionable if this stuff is even legal. In the short, and :60 cutdown, we witness men in ascots hiding steamy hot mugs in their blazer pockets, stockbrokers pouring it from carafes on street corners and Hollywood “it” stars getting cuffed for possession. Police detectives are out in force to stem the tide and bring these “coffeeheads” to justice.

Nilsson played an integral role in developing the film which plays like a unique genre mix of neon-noir meets cop dramedy. The two-minute song accompanying the edit is an original track composed by Christoffer Berg, a noted electronic music composer/writer/producer.
