Short explanation
Each Christmas, Unicef sell Christmas gifts in their webshop. Field products such as vaccine, medicine, nutrition and school material. The things you buy are sent to children in need, and you get a gift card to give to your friend. Our job was to promote these gifts. The biggest challange was to break through during the busiest and most commercial time of year. We needed something that would burst that Christmas bubble.Our solution was to fire up a debate, using a thought provoking film that explains the big inequities of the world. And there's no better example of inequity than Santa. In a TV spot, that was also put online, Santa explains he only deliver toys.

Unicef is the world's leading children's rights organization.
