A cute new spot from Ireland for Dairygold butter shows how the fact that its product is "spreadable straight from the fridge" can save you a precious minute in your day -- and that might lead to a heartwarming parental moment.
The ad, by Dublin's Rothco, depicts a dad who takes a minute at breakfast time to show his young daughter how to draw a unicorn, something she's struggling with. Later on, he finds she's illustrated a whole sketchbook worth of colorful unicorns, with some of the pictures also featuring "Dad."
It's a simple, but utterly charming premise -- and quite apart from the message about spreadable butter, reminds parents everywhere that sometimes it's worth spending that precious minute paying attention to your child's seemingly small worries.
Directed by Kim Geldenhuys of 030:07, the ad is part of a wider campaign by the Kerry Foods-owned brand called "Make a Minute for the Good Stuff" that has included encouraging people to put their spare minutes toward volunteering. In 2018, it pushed "micro-volunteering," giving the Irish public the opportunity to give their minute to do good, as well as feel good.
