Ogilvy Brasil has come out with a mid-year Christmas commercial, “Santa’s Forgotten Letters”. In 2010 the advertising agency went to the town of Santa Claus, USA, and discovered in a museum there letters that people had sent to Santa Claus over 40 years ago. 75 letters were selected from a range of 60,000 letters. The agency’s mission then was to find the authors that Santa Claus would deliver the gifts requested when they were children. What if Santa knocked on your door and gave you something you asked for 40 years ago?
