This anthem spot for Macy’s holiday campaign centers around an astronaut who is in space over the holiday season, and her seven year-old daughter, Mia.  The mom keeps in contact with her family over video transmission, and keeping her company in space is Sunny, a snowpal hand-made by Mia.  As the spot unfolds, you see the wonder of the holiday season through an ingenious plan hatched by Mia. The piece ends with the line, “Believe in the Wonder of Giving.”

Titled “Space Station,” the :60 was directed by two-time DGA Award winner Martin de Thurah of Epoch Films for BBDO New York.
