The ‘End Marmite Neglect’ commercial is a hilarious way to promote the popular food spread.

In this commercial, the "Marmite Rescue Unit" is sent into homes to search for jars of Marmite that have been long forgotten in the backs of kitchen cupboards. The unit is shown rushing jars of Marmite out of the house like they were severely mistreated animals in need of urgent care.

At the end of the commercial, the neglected jars of Marmite have been given new homes where they are much more appreciated. The Marmite jars are shown sitting at the breakfast tables of happy families, being enjoyed by all. This campaign is a hilarious way to respond to the statistic that this year alone, "one in 10 Brits admit they haven’t opened their jar in over three months."
