Maltesers: Getting Ready

Embed Video
The latest instalment of Maltesers' long-running 'Look on the Light Side' campaign looks at how women are getting together online, supporting each other by laughing through the ups and downs of life in quarantine. The new series of ads shot entirely through video conferencing, takes a humorous look at the struggles of balancing work-life with young children, video-dating and living alone. Maltesers has a history of encouraging and celebrating laughter as a mechanism to break down barriers and bring women together.
Agency: AMV BBDO, London

The brand took an important first step in normalising the representation of disability in advertising when it launched the award-winning ‘Look on the Light Side of Disability’ campaign during the 2016 Rio Paralympics. More recently, the campaign continued using the power of laughter to speak of the challenges facing underrepresented groups from the older workforce and LGBT+ community. As the COVID-19 pandemic presents new and unique challenges to the whole country, this new digital campaign reinforces the #stayhome message and shines a spotlight on some of the day-to-day challenges facing women in self-isolation. The ads go beyond feel-good montage, to reflect the reality of life at home and show how women are using humour to create connection and make each other feel better in these extraordinary circumstances.
