Which came first, the chicken or the egg? A new epic ad from a French supermarket chain is attempting to solve the mystery.
It’s a question that has remained unanswered for centuries. So this ad is going back in time to look for the answer.
French Supermarket brand Systeme U is known for its tongue-in-cheek tone. In its latest ad, promoting the quality and provenance of the eggs sold under its own brand, Systeme U is traveling back to the origin of times to finally bring an answer to one of the world’s biggest mysteries: “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?”
The campaign titled “The Hen” (or “La Poule” in French,) was created by TBWA/Paris. It takes us back in time from the present as it follows a hen (or rather an egg?) and its ancestors through World War 1, the 18th century, the Roman Empire, the Stone Age, and all the way to the time when the dinosaurs ruled over our planet.
And no, the ad does not actually answer the question. Which can be terribly frustrating if it was not for the beauty of its production. So, which do you think came first?
