#SANTACLARA - THE WHOLE CAMPAIGN IN A NUTSHELL
Please watch the casefilm here and get to know how we launched a 1000° gender campaign on christmas 2016.
In 2016, we didn’t want to make just another highly tearful christmas-spot. This year, we wanted to change the world.
Yes, we may live in 2016 and the gender topic is up all agendas. Yes, women may lead the industry, kids can have two dads or moms. But thinking of christmas we seem to live somewhere in the early 1950ies. Christmas is done completely by women. Alone. And who gets all the fame? Santa Claus. This is not only unfair, but also very outdated.
So we changed christmas for better and spreaded the first christmas-message of equality with a huge 360 degree all media campaign including a Viral, a Number One Song and a Content Collection in Europe.
We came up with the redefinition of Santa Claus. With #SantaClara, a new ambassador of a new kind of christmas. A christmas really for everybody.
With over 66 Mio views and 400.000 shares #SantaClara reached 4th place of Most Viral Christmas Ads. As Paris Hilton or Eva Longoria twittered their solidarity with #santaclara we knew, the message was understood.
PS: for the first time, the main role in the Disney-Christmas movie 2017 is not an oldschool Santa Claus, but? A woman!
Please watch the original viral video that not only aired europewide on TV but became one of the most shared christmas videos ever.
