Argos’ 2014 Christmas advertisement is set to burst onto TV screens tomorrow evening, marking the fifth execution in quick succession from the new GET SET GO ARGOS campaign by CHI&Partners, which launched last month.
As energetic and contemporary as the three that have preceded it, the new advertisement, ‘Advent', opens to reveal a three-dimensional, life-size advent calendar made up of cubes stacked in the shape of a Christmas tree.
The cubes erupt open to reveal a montage of energised activity – BMXers, skaters, street dancers and a colourful array of Argos products, from toys, tablets, cameras and games consoles to speakers and jewellery, inhabit the cubes, bringing the scene to life. The tree- shaped calendar is topped by a child hip-hop dancing – a contemporary twist on the traditional Christmas Fairy.
Accompanied by Run DMC’s hip-hop track Christmas in Hollis, the spot sends an upbeat message of festive cheer to Argos customers, as well as communicating the wide choice of gift ideas available from Argos.
Carl Nield, Head of Brand Marketing at Argos, said: “This advert will deliver energy and excitement into millions of living rooms to provide a modern twist on Christmas, while also demonstrating all of the top brands now available at Argos – ranging from Bose to KitchenAid.”
The new advertisement will launch on Friday 7 November during ITV1’s Coronation Street and Channel 4’s Gogglebox, with further spots this weekend during ITV1’s X Factor, the Channel 4 premiere of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Channel 5’s MTV EMA Awards.
Argos’ one million social media fans will have a sneak preview of the TV advertisement on the Argos Facebook page a few hours before the first TV spot.
Launched last month, the GET SET GO ARGOS campaign marked the biggest ever shift in Argos’ advertising strategy. It brings to life Argos’ unique offer and its ongoing drive to become a digital retail leader for everyone.view more - Creative
