Jif “The Return” by Dave Meyers with JAMM and Motif Studios

Culver City studio JAMM and Motif Studios in Cape Town, South Africa, deliver the respective VFX and animation exclamation points for Radical Media director Dave Meyers’ ode to the inspirational powers of Jif peanut butter.

The spot, which stars Atlanta rappers Ludacris and Gunna, started as the latest installment of Publicis/PSOne’s “That Jif’ing Good” campaign but has taken on a life of its own including a TikTok challenge.

Ludacris: “Those who know me know I am a die-hard peanut butter lover – I even have it on my rider! The opportunity to bring together two things I love – Jif peanut butter and hip hop music – was a creative challenge I just couldn’t pass up.”
