PAYPAL, PROUD SPONSOR OF “UNCLE AWESOME” THIS CHRISTMAS
From November, PayPal takes the floor again with its agency Buzzman in a wide integrated multimedia campaign. Deployed in more than 15 european countries, the brand reaffirms its commitment: to pay in one click and in safe with the buyer protection and returns on Us on millions of sites*.
Christmas is this friendly and warm moment, when young and old enjoy to gather around a good meal and offer presents to those they love. However, when some are impatient to these moments, others fear to open their gifts.
In this new film, PayPal stages a teenager unenthusiastic to see her uncle again and to unwrap his present… This uncle who always a little « too much » in her eyes. This uncle who wears the same sweater every year for Christmas. This uncle who always tells the same jokes. This uncle who always makes the wrong gift…But this year, she could be surprised, thanks to Paypal!
From November, the campaign will be declined in 60″, 45″, 20″ via a cinema and digital, spread in 15 european countries.
*Buyer Protection & Returns on Us exclusions apply. Available on eligible purchases only. See full terms and conditions.
