Publicis Conseil, Megaforce Celebrate An Orange Xmas, "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year"
This film portrays all that can go wrong during the Xmas season--getting stuck in the snow, long shopping lines, coping with the fights that flair up during family get-togethers, the perils of preparing holiday meals, airport layovers--as people struggle to sing along in unison the Andy Williams classic, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year.”
The pairing of the song with the pitfalls of the holidays makes for a delightfully ironic pairing to promote the Wonderful Christmas by Orange, the place where you can get the gifts that bring a smile to your face no matter what the holidays may otherwise bring. Indeed at the film’s end we see folks unwrap their gifts with joyful results--all the trials and tribulations are forgotten thanks to the perfect presents bought at Orange.
This Orange Xmas was conceived by a creative ensemble at Publicis Conseil, Paris, and directed by Megaforce via production house Iconoclast.
