Top Spot of the Week: Kraft Macaroni & Cheese’s "What I Did For Love"
The spot celebrates the lengths people will go to get their hands on even just one bite of gooey, creamy, cheesy Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. Directed by Hank Perlman of Hungry Man for CP+B and set to Marvin Hamlisch’s “What I Did For Love,” this :45 features the various ruses, sneakiness, and outright thievery by Kraft Mac & Cheese lovers of all ages. “What I Did for Love” was written by Marvin Hamlisch and Edward Kleban in 1975 for Broadway, and has been recorded by many artists since. This version for this commercial was arranged by JSM Music, New York.
