House of Racoons, Sinkhole

Agency: McCann


We all know a bad cup of coffee can ruin a good morning. But can a cup of coffee be so good that it can save a bad morning? Well, if you ask COFFEE-MATE, maybe. In the latest campaign for COFFEE-MATE, Nestlé Canada and McCann Canada aren’t promising that a cup of rich and creamy coffee can cure the morning blues. Just that it certainly can’t hurt. Produced by Circle Productions, the campaign comedically presents less-than-ideal situations that could easily ruin a morning, like a family of raccoons moving into the dishwasher or a giant, mysterious sinkhole appearing overnight, and remedies them with the only viable solution – coffee. And while a regular cup clearly isn’t going to cut it, a rich and creamy cup of coffee, with COFFEE MATE, just might.

This professional campaign titled 'House of Racoons, Sinkhole' was published in Canada in March, 2021. It was created for the brand: Coffee-Mate, by ad agency: McCann. This Film medium campaign is related to the Confectionery, Snacks and Soft Drinks industries and contains 2 media assets. It was submitted about 3 years ago.
