19 Dec TOP 5 HOLIDAY ADS OF 2014
In the spirit of the season, GH wants to share our favorite holiday ads of 2014. The featured selections not only convey a message, but they share a story. Some are funny, some are heartwarming. And all capture the holiday spirit.
The Purest Love
This story follows a boy and his beloved penguin as they learn that making someone else happy is priceless. We, the viewers, click away feeling good about the ad and ultimately, the company. The John Lewis company wears its heart on its sleeve for all to see.
Down the Rabbit Hole
This Target ad takes viewers through an imagination-filled world that allows a young girl to go wherever she wants to go, leaving the viewer to wonder how it will end. Plus, it brings out the ‘kid in all of us’… and that’s something that’s just fun to do every now and then. You’ll start to remember just how magical this time of year can be, no matter how old you are.
How many companies influence a child’s view on the world around them? UPS showed just how important it is to make a personal impact on the people they serve—and how to take that inspiration to the next level.
Unexpected Holiday Joys
Thinking outside of the box can bring wonderful and unexpected results. This ad features everyday folks in a Microsoft store, just browsing, when their time is pleasantly interrupted with a spirit-lifting song and dance number, leaving a lasting impression that they’re sure to share with friends and family.
“Everything old is new again.” Yes, even in this era of ever-changing technology, we can mix our past with the here-and-now. This ad inspires us to recreate cherished memories and do something that has become increasingly difficult: reconnect the generations.
These companies did a great job of capturing the holiday spirit while creating a personal connection. We hope you enjoy these “aww” moments of holiday 2014 as much as we did.
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
