Virgin Media 'It's Playtime'

Agency: Publicis


All work and no play can make life very dull. So Virgin Media is here to help us prioritise play and remind everyone of its true value. Publicis Dublin’s nationwide through the line campaign for Virgin Media brings this idea to life by showing a series of toy figurines breaking free from their packaging to have some fun in a closed department store at night-time. But these aren’t your typical action figure type toys. There’s the Financial Advisor, the IT Technician, the Call Centre Operator. These toys represent all of us who’ve become trapped in the everyday grind. We watch as they use a combination of tech and toys to find their play. It’s Playtime.

This professional campaign titled 'Virgin Media 'It's Playtime'' was published in Ireland in February, 2023. It was created for the brand: Virgin Media, by ad agency: Publicis. This Film medium campaign is related to the Media, Movies, and Music industries and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted 5 months ago by Doring: Nick of Publicis Dublin.
