many of us are, a strategy requires
a vision, does it not?

That can be
the toughest part."

First, a conviction inside
that strengthens and guides one

Combined with the passion
of doing what one loves
and excels at." 

~ Carrie ~

BV Podcast S04 E11 | DEC 22

BV Podcast Special Holiday Episode · S02 E13



Linking the Christmas message of your Brand to an infamous world war is not exactly what most of us would propose to our clients! Yet that is exactly what AMV BBDO did.  In 2014, they drew viewers' attention to a little-known historical fact: the Christmas Fraternisation between German and British soldiers in December, 1914.

The unexpected focus of the Christian message of "Peace on Earth, good will to Men", is masterfully brought to life in these poignant scenes, where young men temporarily abandon war to celebrate the birth of Christ, singing "Silent Night" / "Stille Nacht" and playing football together.


The Prince of Peace: A hauntingly beautiful Christmas classic, sung by Clay Aiken
