PARSIPPANY, N.J., Sept. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Butterfinger®, the one-of-a-kind chocolate bar with a crispety, crunchety, peanut-buttery taste, is introducing the Butterfinger Investigators (BFI) in a hilarious video series chronicling the antics of Butterfinger-swiping perps. The formation of the BFI introduces two soon-to-be-beloved characters: wise-cracking agents Hugh Dunnit and Ali Byes, brought to life by Amir Arison and Alexandria Benford. The actors' experience on well-known shows – in particular, Arison's stint as an FBI agent on critically acclaimed show The Blacklist – lends a uniquely comedic twist to the detective genre. Appearing at major "crime scenes," the duo star in :15 and :30 ads, as well as a longform YouTube webisode available here.

"We're thrilled to introduce the world to the BFI," said Silvia Borla, VP of Marketing for Ferrero Chocolate Brands. "We've all given in to the temptation to steal a Butterfinger or two. With these new characters solving hilarious but relatable 'crimes,' we're sure to entertain our fans and show why Butterfinger is so unique and irresistible to everyone."

Because families across the country have found that their Butterfinger bars "go missing" in the weeks leading up to Halloween, the BFI is on a mission to bring the sticky-fingered chocolate lovers to justice once and for all. Guilty parties and Butterfinger fans can aid the BFI in their quest by turning themselves in at for the chance to win $25,000.
