Campaign Spotlight: Celebrations® calls on the nation to Bring The Whoop Whoop all year round in new brand campaign by AMV BBDO

LONDON, UK — As holiday campaigns begin to hit our screens, Celebrations® is encouraging the world to celebrate all year round and come together, not just at Christmas. The new ‘Bring The Whoop Whoop’ campaign positions Celebrations® as the ultimate gift to share, drawing people together to have fun, be happy, and enjoy life.

Kicking off the brand activity, a new ad has been developed by AMV BBDO which features two identical twins opening two identical presents. The pair reveal two boxes of Celebrations resulting in them celebrating by whoop whooping at each other. As the excitement builds, the rest of the family join in.


The advert will run until the end of 2021 across TV, VOD, YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook, and is further supported by in-store activation.

While the new strategy maintains and celebrates Celebrations® festive heritage, it sees the brand move beyond its traditional Christmas association by evolving the classic Celebrations® box into a gift for any time of the year.

Cemre Cudal, Senior Brand Manager, Celebrations® said: “Celebrations® has become synonymous with Christmas and the holiday season. While this is brilliant, our new campaign looks to push the brand further into those other moments of joy and celebration. The new creative captures the wonderful feeling of joy, excitement, and whoop whoop energy you get when you gift or receive Celebrations® – which we think should be embraced all year round!”

With comedy, comedic performance, and timing key to the campaign, the production team chose to work with New Zealander director Damien Shatford, through production company The Sweetshop.

Andre Hull and Clark Edwards, creative directors at AMV BBDO, said: “We wanted the ads to be pure moments of excitement and escapism. Damien and his kiwi sensibilities made the whole thing gloriously ridiculous in all the right ways. Whoop Whoop”.

In 2022 and beyond, a further wave of work will launch that will embody this all-year-round spirit showing that Celebrations® can bring the celebrations whenever needs be.
