Premise[edit | edit source]
The commercial starts with a kid eating Champola while watching a horror movie. A bust sculpture was seen in his back and the sculpture stared and saw Champola. Each wafer stick is going outside of the box and the sculpture was seen eating it with the voiceover saying, "so deliciously crispy". Someone then went into the kid's house with the kid being scared and he took a baseball hat and he hides. The kid screamed and pointed a weapon at someone that went to the kid's house. It turns out it's his friends and they laughed at him. They happily ate Champola and the bust sculpture laughed in an evil manner. The kid and his friends got scared and ran. The slogan and product appeared with the sculpture in the background with the voiceover saying, "Champola Wafer Sticks. One Stick Is Not Enough" followed by a sound effect of the sculpture's evil laugh.
The said commercial was animated especially the eyes and the mouth. It is said to have a creepy male voiceover and an ominous BGM.
