‘A Merry Midea Holiday’: Pereira O’Dell’s seasonal campaign for Midea America features ‘Mr Grump’ Character

Pereira O’Dell, creative agency of record for Midea, a major appliance manufacturer, is thrilled to share our latest campaign titled ‘A Merry Midea Holiday’. As the holiday season approaches, Midea is deviating from the conventional joyous gatherings to acknowledge the stress and chaos that often accompany the festivities.

In a world saturated with holiday campaigns emphasizing perfect gatherings, Midea’s approach is rooted in one important cultural insight: during COVID, 70% of people secretly found relief in not hosting holiday events due to stress (source: American Psychiatric Association, 2021). "A Merry Midea Holiday" addresses the authentic sentiments of stress and disaster associated with the season – however, Midea's uniquely designed kitchen appliances promise to turn even the most pessimistic holiday gathering-goers into festive enthusiasts.

Inspired by "The Grinch That Stole Christmas," the campaign revolves around a holiday “grump” (that’s Mr. Grump to you) navigating the chaos of a family gathering. However, a touch of Midea magic in the kitchen transforms his perspective, showcasing how Midea appliances can make holidays smoother and more enjoyable – melting his ice cold heart.

This professional campaign titled 'A Merry Midea Holiday' was published in United States in November, 2023. It was created for the brand: Midea America, by ad agency: Pereira O’Dell. This Film medium campaign is related to the Retail Services industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted 3 months ago.
