The Mall Santa

Agency: McCann


‘Xbox Design Lab: The Fanchise Model’ was a campaign that let gamers take ownership of their unique controller design. And if others bought it, you earned a cut of the profits. To help people sell even more, Xbox created a bespoke series of ads that brought to life the inspiration behind their designs, ranging from personal anecdotes to movies to topical events. The ads deconstruct the inspiration into its individual parts, visually telling a quirky story. Befitting a premium product, they draw inspiration from the way fashion brands market luxury accessories, elevating the product to feel like a true object of desire.

This professional campaign titled 'The Mall Santa' was published in United Kingdom in June, 2017. It was created for the brands: Microsoft and Xbox, by ad agency: McCann. This OOH Outdoor medium campaign is related to the Electronics, Technology and Gaming industries and contains 2 media assets. It was submitted almost 7 years ago.
