What is going on in this 1980s’ 3 Musketeers Candy Bar Commercial??


Okay, so the guy comes out in this amazing yellow and brown double-breasted tuxedo at the start and I guess he going to a prom or something? His friends give him the business, but then escort him down the street. Okay, I am following you.

Then people are biting 3 Musketeers. Okay you still got me (even though they chew with your mouth open, which is not cool).

So let’s get to this prom and see what happens! No wait, now we are at a co-ed arm wrestling match? Is this a different group? Now the woman is eating the 3 Musketeers and the commercial is over?? What happened? Did I miss something that is in the Directors Cut of this commercial?

So is this just a day in the life a 3 Musketeers bar? Is it the same bar being passed around? Does all activity on this street revolve around activities that are best accompanied with 3 Musketeers candy bars? So many questions and so few answers.
