After the year we've all had, Tesco says there is no naughty list
Tesco urges shoppers to not worry about the “naughty” things they might have done in 2020 and tuck into the finest food and drink Tesco has to offer
With 74%* of the nation saying they wanted to see light-hearted content in this year’s festive ad offering, the humorous Tesco advert shows people from across Britain worrying about the things that might put them on the naughty list this Christmas – from bad video call etiquette to buying too much loo roll. 2020 has been quite the year and we've all had to improvise to get by; 78%* of us admit to a naughty slip-up this year. As they deliberate over whether they are allowed a festive treat, we hear the voice of Tesco encouraging them not to think twice, not after this year.
The campaign was created by BBH and directed by Raine Allen-Miller from production company Somesuch. The campaign comprises TV, press, OOH, radio, social, in-store and PR and launches with a 60s TV spot on Saturday 14th November during ITV’s ‘The Voice. The soundtrack is on theme – Britney Spears’ ‘Oops!...I did it again’ – and the voiceover is provided by renowned comedian Asim Chaudhry.
Alessandra Bellini, Chief Customer Officer at Tesco, says: “At Tesco, we want to help customers celebrate and this year that didn’t just mean fabulous food and drink – they told us they were also looking for a bit of joy after a tricky year. Hopefully our ad will deliver that, while providing reassurance that – no matter how dodgy that home haircut was – you’re not alone and after this year, you’re definitely not on the naughty list, so embrace the festive treats.”
Tom Drew, Creative Director at BBH, says: ‘Who on earth would be on the naughty list after the year we’ve had? Hopefully we’ve made something to make people smile at a time when we need it most.’
