Editor TVCs, News Make a Comment

AUCKLAND, Today: Shortland St-based M&C Saatchi – with Assembly and Liquid – has shot Countdown’s new Christmas spot, Reverse Fairytale. 

M&C NZ ECD Paul Hankinson said: “To somebody who lives at the North Pole, Christmas with warmth and sunshine in shorts and jandals would seem pretty wondrous and magical – so it’s basically a Christmas fairytale in reverse.”

The integrated campaign runs across TV, OOH, digital and social.
