McDonalds “Inner Child” by Againstallodds

Firmly grasping your tear duct triggers with both hands, Swedish directing team Againstallodds return to the holiday season with a heart-tugging CG narrative for McDonalds via Passion Pictures and Leo Burnett.

Propelled by a gentle cover of Alphaville’s 1984 hit “Forever Young” by British singer/songwriter Becky Hill, the spot is the latest in Againstallodds string of wins turning pixels into emotion. Watch video evidence, here, here and here.

Passion Pictures: “This is our second time producing the Christmas #ReindeerReady film for McDonalds with agency Leo Burnett. The film tells the story of Tom as he half-heartedly goes through the motions of his Christmas traditions with his mum, hanging decorations and visiting the Christmas market whilst busy on his phone.

“However, once they stop by the McDonalds to pick up that bag of Reindeer Treats, Tom finally listens to his inner child and finds his Christmas Spirit.”
