These two 15 second spots were for a Sympatico holiday promotion. These were the first Bell commercials that Global Mechanic did with Cossette as the agency, and the first BCE ads in the pixel campaign that were not for the Mobility brand.

There are some nice little touches in these ads – I like the gelatinous turkey action as its being stuffed and the spray of walnut shells accompanied by little electrical crackles when it gets crushed in the laptop.

When they said \'nutcracker\' I don\'t think this is what they meant.
