Perfect Thanksgiving

Agency: The Distillery Project


Full-service ad agency The Distillery Project (TDP) has created a Thanksgiving brand campaign for retailer Meijer that hits just the right notes for the almost-post-COVID crowd. “Perfect Thanksgiving”. Meijer asked the agency to imbue its seasonal creative with fresh insights since Americans’ holiday plans are expected to be radically different for 2021.
The 60-second spot opens with individuals looking into the camera and saying what they’re grateful for. The twist: It’s not their loved ones or their health—it’s cynical-sounding stuff like being stuck in holiday traffic and “getting” to prep a mountain of toasted breadcrumbs for the stuffing. The camera pulls back to show their predicaments. Several people at the holiday table give thanks for cringeworthy, yet relatable, holiday horrors.

This professional campaign titled 'Perfect Thanksgiving' was published in United States in November, 2021. It was created for the brand: Meijer, by ad agency: The Distillery Project. This Film medium campaign is related to the Food and Retail Services industries and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted over 2 years ago.
