Macy’s and BBH NY unveiled this “Old Friends” film to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The spot, which will air on NBC during this year’s Parade, honors the magical ability of the Parade to bring people together and make us believe. 

Told with no dialogue to the sound of a musical score, the spot, directed by Noam Murro of Biscuit Filmworks, is a fable about two old friends (one of whom is human) and the special role the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has played in their lives for 90 years. Beginning with a young boy viewing the Parade with his parents, the spot authentically recreates historic New York City.
