The Best Work You May Never See: Bent Image Lab Solves Santa Milk Mystery For Dairy Farmers of Canada, DDB Toronto
Dairy Farmers of Canada (DFC) celebrates the season with a charming film that connects the brand with the magic of the holidays. DFC’s holiday campaign by DDB Canada in Toronto shares a story of what happens to the milk children lay out for Santa on Christmas Eve.
“Milk plays an integral role in the long-standing tradition of leaving a glass out for Santa on Christmas Eve,” explains Sébastien Bergeron, assistant director, Mmarketing, DFC. “Our holiday campaign celebrates this cultural moment to connect the brand with the holidays in a relevant way.”
The 60-second stop-motion animated online film, “A glass for Santa,” asks the question whether or not Santa actually drinks all the milk on Christmas Eve. Set to a cover version of Stevie Wonder’s track “Everyone’s a Kid at Christmas Time,” the film is made entirely out of felt and was handcrafted by Bent Image Lab.
