Few brands are left to launch their Christmas campaigns. The last to do so has been Tim Hortons, the Canadian coffee-restaurant brand, and it does so with a message of equality.

Anuncio de Navidad de Carrefour | The Letter

“The Letter” is Carrefour’s Christmas commercial with a letter as the main axis.

This year is especially difficult for those who want to celebrate Christmas in a traditional way. During the current situation, we recommend not shopping in malls with crowds of people, or getting together to celebrate family holidays. The recommendation from the telling, advertising agency is to have common sense and good sense these days. We can celebrate these days, but heeding the government’s recommendations. For those who want to give gifts, choose to buy in the local store and on days with less influx.

Department stores are aware and that is why they are promoting online shopping with delivery service. This is the case of Carrefour’s Christmas ad, which takes advantage of the context to reinforce its brand purpose.

When they could not aspire to excel, they changed the pattern with the sponsorship of Colin Kaepernick and his stance against Trump. And in the midst of a pandemic they managed to launch one of the most brutal spots in recent years with “You Can’t Stop Us”.
