03 Dec: Best Buy’s 2020 holiday ads reflect ‘unique times we’re living in’

With a playful nod to children’s letters to Santa, Best Buy’s holiday ads are bringing some holiday cheer while also reflecting the unique aspects of life in 2020.

The “Dear Best Buy” campaign was created using stop-motion animation, with sets and characters rendered in miniature by top animators from the feature film world. We worked closely with our inclusion and diversity team to make sure the characters authentically represent the communities we serve, and we hired voiceover talent that aligned with characters.
