'Twas a Christmas Food Waste Miracle

Agency: Ogilvy


At Christmastime in the UK, brands spend millions of pounds competing for consumers’ attention. Hellmann’s wanted to cut through the Christmas clutter and raise awareness of food waste. So we created an “Animal Crossing: New Horizons” in-game virtual food drive and used it to make a Christmas advert with ZERO filming costs. Our advert was edited using only in-game footage. Then we recruited Animal Crossing enthusiast, Stephen Fry, to provide the narration.

This professional campaign titled ''Twas a Christmas Food Waste Miracle' was published in Canada in December, 2020. It was created for the brand: Hellmann's, by ad agency: Ogilvy. This Film medium campaign is related to the Food industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted over 3 years ago by Copywriter: Ian of Ogilvy Canada.
