Create a campaign to mark Sainsbury’s 150th anniversary.
What we did
From Sainsbury’s humble beginnings to modern day success, it’s never lost sight of what is important – helping out in communities and proudly doing its bit. We created a campaign to help celebrate every person who kept this spirit alive for 150 years.
Directed by Noah Harris and produced by Agile Films, the spot features real Sainsbury’s colleagues, Californian pastry chef Claire Ptak, and an army of helpers as they combine 3D printing and traditional sugarcraft to make a cake that showcases stories from throughout our history.
A real feat of engineering, the 3D zoetrope cake combines traditional Victorian techniques with cutting edge technology to tell the story in a suitably celebratory way. All the effects were shot for real, in camera, allowing the cast to see our history come to life. A challenge worthy of Sainsbury’s 150th anniversary, and a heartfelt tribute to everyone who has made them who they are.
“This shows that Sainsbury’s celebration of its 150 year history was received well by customers as a whole,” said YouGov. “The advert resonated with Sainsbury’s current target market, and demonstrates that Sainsbury understands their audience and what would appeal to them most.”
According to Adwatch, Proudly Doing Our Bit was also the fourth most liked spot during June.
