TurboTax – all people are tax people
TurboTax is running “All People Are Tax People Remix,” a music video styled commercial designed to air during the NFL Super Bowl LIV. “All People Are Tax People Extended Remix” is an original full-length song and music video recognizing the idea that taxes are something we all have in common. The song pays tribute to Bounce music with its repetition, high energy and southern style roots, and is brought to life on film featuring a diverse array and reflection of the American people. The remix ad is the culmination of the TurboTax “All People Are Tax People” campaign that debuted in January 2020. Fans of the video are invited to show off their #W2Step for the chance to win $5,000 by uploading a video of their dance on Twitter or Instagram using #W2Step and tagging @TurboTax.
“With the Super Bowl, we are creating a moment, at the height of tax season, to inspire and empower fans, and celebrate what unites us,” said Mary-Ann Somers, Senior Vice President, Intuit’s Consumer Group. “We believe that people are capable of amazing things and, with the right tools and encouragement, they can do anything – including their taxes. This spot is a celebration that everyone can confidently do their taxes with TurboTax, no matter how much or little help they need.”
