Intu Your Kind of Shopping for Christmas

UK retail chain Intu is using bird puppets to promote Christmas shopping in stores. A range of Christmas shoppers are portrayed in a department store setting by large puppets handled by four puppeteers dressed in white: a mother duck with her ducklings, the last minute rooster shopping with fear, a bargain hunter eagle, a me-me-me pink flamingo, a window shopper swan, an excited peacock and the wise shopper owl. Intu’s logo bird appears at the top of a white Christmas tree, looking down on the peacock. The Intu Your Kind of Shopping campaign includes out of home advertising and digital elements.
