“Back in the shtetl days, old Jewish women, or Yentas, served as matchmakers. It was their job to bring couples together and keep the tribe alive,” explained independent creative director David Roth, who created the campaign with Hogarth Worldwide. “Our campaign casts the traditional yentas as Jdate programmers coding through the night to build the best Jewish matchmaking site.”
In the advertisements, three adorable grandmothers wear the typical Silicon Valley programmer outfit (branded hoodie & t-shirt, beanie, and oversized headphones). But the ladies are smartly accessorized with age-appropriate fashion like orthopedic shoes and clunky granny glasses. To re-enforce the tech company setting, they are surrounded by energy drinks, post-it notes, and laptops.
