The 60-second TVC, titled Almost Home, tells the story of a truckie and his beloved companion Louie.
McDonald’s Australia has launched the second brand TVC as part of its new brand campaign by DDB Sydney.
At the centre of the campaign is a 60-second TVC, titled Almost Home, which celebrates and reminds Aussies that Macca’s is more than a place for great burgers, nuggets and fries.
The campaign celebrates the unique role that Macca’s plays in everyday Aussie lives – a familiar place where people come together.
“At Macca’s we take great pride in the role we play in customers’ lives every day, no matter where they are. Whether for burger and fries, a break while on a road trip, or a family get together," McDonald’s Australia marketing director Jo Feeney says.
"Our new campaign is centred on highlighting this role that we play for Australians right across the country. In this latest spot, we’re celebrating a story of friendship and family – the togetherness that Macca’s provides for people, whether at home or on the road”.
Almost Home brings to life the story of a truckie and his beloved companion, Louie, who is always by his owner’s side.
Their bond, their shared experiences and their journey demonstrate the fact that no matter where you go, whether you are home or away, there is a Macca’s along the way.
“Macca’s holds a unique place in the hearts and minds of Aussies," DDB Sydney chief creative officer Tara Ford says.
"It’s about more than the food they serve or the four walls of their restaurants. We are thrilled to embrace the power of storytelling to showcase this human truth.”
The campaign will appear nationwide in TV, online and cinema.
