Facebook Historical Ad Campaign

By October 8, 2012Advertising, Social Media

Facebook just passed 1 billion active users in the world, and for the first time since its creation, the largest social network presents its first TV commercial.

For this historic 90-second video clip, Facebook has chosen creative agency Wieden & Kennedy and Hollywood director Alejandro Inarritu. With this film “The Things that connect us”, the company uses the symbolism of universal values, and pays tribute to the unifying objects of everyday life such as… “chairs”. At first sight, ordinary objects but that link the men together like doorbells, airplanes, bridges… and now Facebook. Being connected is what brings us together and what makes us human: we are primarily social beings.

“For the first time in our history, we’ve made a brand video to express what our place is on this Earth” – Mark Zuckerberg
