Natura launched its Christmas campaign, “Afeto Enferrujado”, which aims to invite people to show affection.
The campaign is the brand’s first animation, signed by Africa, and shows a tin doll that notices that her embrace is rusty, but awakens her memory and the desire to find her grandmother again when she smells the brand’s fragrance.
The animation, produced by Pródigo Filmes in partnership with Pedro Conti, refers to the loss of the practice of giving and receiving affection after so long and invites everyone to feel Christmas again.
“Over time it seems that we lose what is most intrinsic to us: the demonstration of affection. However, we can’t forget what’s part of us all — and we haven’t lost touch. Exchanges and relationships take on a new form in view of the hope of new moments, memories and sharing. It only takes one step, one gesture, to regain all the affection that we have kept”, highlighted Fernanda Rol, Marketing Director at Natura in Brazil.
In addition to the 30″ movie premiered on open TV and a version for Natura’s digital channels, the campaign also features influencers on social media and the participation of Nat, the brand’s virtual assistant on Twitter, who will also tell about their own unrust from relationships. The campaign will run in Latin America.
“I think all of us are faced with this situation: wanting to hug, wanting to change, but no longer knowing exactly how. Our social skills and our affection were a little out of shape. But a gesture can unlock affection. And this de-rusting, such a simple metaphor, found its best translation in the magic of animation,” said Sophie Schonburg, Executive Director of Creative Africa.
