German supermarket brand Edeka is running “Eatkarus”, the story of a boy (Joseph Harmon) who dreams of flying and discovers the significance of food choices. The Edeka Eatkarus commercial was inspired by the Greek myth of Icarus and Daedalus, whose escape from the labyrinth of Crete was made possible with wings of feathers and wax.
The story of Eatkarus shows the boy raised in an environment of obesity fuelled by gray splodge. His discovery of a bird through the window sparks a dream of flying. In the mountains he discovers the bird’s secret. “Iss wie der, der du sein willst”, is translated in English as “Eat like the one you want to be”.
