Different strokes for different folks.

McCain: “Differences” - 60s

McCain's occasionally controversial 'We Are Family' campaign returns with another warm portrait of domesticity from adam&eveDDB and director Finn McGough. With Ricky Tomlinson once again on narration duties, the ad encourages people to embrace rather than reject the differences that make up their respective clans.

This is illustrated by a well-chosen compendium of family units that are solid, fluid, or works in progress. That they should all share a love of oven chips will come as no surprise to the initiated, however, and it does show the brand is working from a template - albeit an effective one.
