HP helps families get real this Xmas in new spot via Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, San Francisco

| | No Comments

The average family spends over 250 hours on screens during the holidays. So HP is helping families get real in its latest spot from Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, San Francisco.


Directed by Academy Award winner Michel Gondry, the film rewrites the classic carol ‘The 12 Days of Christmas’, showing a young girl watching a surreal screen-obsessed world of “teens-a-texting” and “lads-a-liking.” But with a little help from a printer, the world is transformed into 12 days of real time, with “sisters spinning” (paper dreidels), “fellas flying” (paper airplanes) and something called “oreejami”.

Australian and US creative audio company Squeak E. Clean Studios handled the music production and sound mix.
