Notes: A Christmas campaign. An international one. With a theme that moves people. Ideally to take a long, hard look at themselves. For Lidl.  It should, of course, be the first to stand out from the crowd in the international Christmas campaign market. To be different. To take a stand. And then, of course, make sure people serve Lidl products this Christmas. This requires a large campaign platform and an intelligent, modular campaign system. We listen to what children want. Sounds trivial. But if you consider it for what it is, it’s oh so relevant! On the one hand, they are the ones who struggle to cope in an increasingly aggressive world. Wishing for peace, reconciliation, love – and desperately needing them. And Lidl reaches out to them, by creating awareness of this wish with a grand film. On the other hand, in its shops Lidl offers everything a child’s heart desires. And it’s affordable for most families.
A modern fairy tale with a deep, emotional core, this epic film explores the tension, anger and stress that are tearing our society apart – and the impact this is having on our future, the next generations. It is these future generations, the children, who play the central and key role in the film. Disappointed and dissatisfied with the less than impressive example of adults in their world, the children set out to discover the true meaning of Christmas, teaching adults and all of us a valuable lesson. The clear message at the end of the mini film, which is shown in 19 Lidl countries: “Dear adults, don’t screw it up!”
