The UK retailer's latest ad aims to wow those who didn't realize
Jul 01, 2022
A brand having a website isn't exactly news these days (who doesn't offer e-commerce in 2022?) but U.K. retailer TK Maxx is setting out to tell those who still, apparently, don't realize that it does.
A simple but memorable TV ad by Wieden+Kennedy London shows a woman in a late night food joint with friends, when she suddenly realizes her favorite retailer has a website. There follows a trippy, almost out-of-body experience as she takes in the full meaning of the revelation.
The spot, helmed by Lou Escobar and produced via Canada, has one aim: to bring the message to the world that TK Maxx has a website, as some shoppers are still unaware of the retail brand’s e-commerce offering. The method includes humor and the simple repetition of the words "TK Maxx has a website."
