According to several international news sites, America’s leading snack nut brand, Planters, launches today a brand new marketing campaign featuring Mr. Peanut.

Mr. Peanut is the beloved icon of Planters and for the first time in 94 years, Mr. Peanut speaks in a series of stop-motion animation commercials that bring to life Planters’ “Naturally Remarkable” world. The first commercial can be seen on Mr. Peanut’s Facebook page on Tueday, November 9, 2010 at 12:00 am EST.

For the first time since his creation in 1916, Mr. Peanut will speak and he has a lot to say. He will introduce people to Planters’ “Naturally Remarkable” world to honor what is important in life such as real and authentic experiences, family and friends, delicious and wholesome foods, and having fun.

“People love Mr. Peanut. He has always had a rich personality, and giving him a voice now allows people to connect with him in an authentic and entertaining way,” Jason Levine, Planters’ senior director of marketing was quoted saying.

“Having him able to speak is bringing him to life as a personality, and people can engage with him more,” he added.

Reports said that Mr. Peanut’s voice will be supplied by actor Robert Downey Jr.
