Iceland launch ‘Tis the Reason Christmas campaign with help from Karmarama

Frozen food retailer Iceland is launching its festive campaign on the first day of advent to coincide with the ‘real’ beginning of Christmas.


The tongue-in-cheek Christmas campaign goes against the grain of traditional advertising at this time of year with a series of nine 20-second adverts using real video footage of families unwrapping Christmas gifts.


The retailer has edited the user-generated clips to show people unwrapping Iceland’s impressive luxury Christmas food under their trees. The dramatic and hilarious reactions of real people are dubbed with comedian voiceovers, creating a series of light-hearted adverts that need to be seen – and heard – to be believed.


The campaign is running across digital, PR, radio, out-of-home, instore, press, poster and the social media hashtag #ReasonsToBeJolly. The TV campaign runs from 1st December until Christmas Eve.
