To stand out in the sweet uniformity of Christmas advertising, for once they're not pushing the tearjerker, but targeting the laugh muscles. "As an established Swiss e-commerce provider and expert in gift giving, we want to stand out from the crowd of Christmas campaigns and make people smile with this exceptionally creative idea," says Regina Ellmann, CMO of Geschenkidee.ch.
"We didn't want to join the chorus of emotive advertising messages, but rather strike an independent note with this campaign," adds Family's Claudio Catrambone. To achieve this, no compromises were made - neither in the story nor in the casting of the characters.
To this end, Geschenkidee.ch and Family have developed the "Riskier keine schlechten Geschenke" campaign. The main character - not very Christmasy - is the mafia boss Don Regalo. A man who puts a stop to bad gifts without batting an eye.
In addition to the spot, which will be seen in various versions online, the mafia boss himself takes over the In-house chatbotwho is used both on Geschenkidee.ch and in interactive display ads. He advises users in the best "Godfather" manner and makes them gift offers that they cannot possibly refuse.
