When All They Want Is That One Animal

Editor's Pick

Anyone with young kids will recognize the scenario in this adorable USPS holiday spot -- little girl sees an animal at a zoo, and immediately wants one for Christmas.

In this case it's a hippopotamus, which might seem difficult to fulfill, but luckily, her doting parents are enthusiastic online researchers and shoppers and USPS is on hand to deliver the plenty of hippo-themed orders they make. Watch out for the inevitable twist after she gets what she wanted.

The spot was created out of McCann New York and directed by Martin Krecji at Stink. The wider campaign spans TV, print, radio, digital and social.
