Consumers are easily distracted when it comes to ads and commercials, but these humorous candy campaigns have creatively infused cartoons and comical themes as a way to make an impression with viewers.

That's why companies are resorting to inventive marketing techniques to sell products, with aims to create a loyal brand following. Viral videos can be a great way to engage consumers, especially the more youthful, tech-savvy generation, prompting marketers to utilize such tactics as humor in their advertisements.

From sour-faced doll prints to sing-a-long candy commercials and uncomfortably comical ads, these humorous candy campaigns will definitely catch a consumer's attention with their use of viral marketing.
