Courage and Caffeine.

Macmillan: “Nothing Stops a Macmillan Coffee Morning” - 30s

While almost everything has gone on hold during 2020 for obvious reasons, Macmillan are determined that nothing will stop their annual fundraising coffee morning from happening. Whether events are small, socially distanced, or entirely online, the charity's supporters aren't going to let a little pandemic stop them from doing their bit.

This whimsical ad runs with the concept, as hosts power through a range of challenges including hipster zombies, the rise of the machines, and a fiendish ice age. Directors Chris Bristow and Sam Gainsborough use lovely animation to inject some vim into the everyday, blending a worthy message with refreshing humour.
