    Ad of the Day: DFS uses creature comforts to embrace individuality

    Building on last year’s ‘What’s your thing?’ brand platform, furniture retailer DFS has launched a wild campaign featuring a whole pack of animals who are unapologetically themselves.

    In ‘Animal Thingdom,’ viewers go deep into a range of decked-out habitats filled with interiors to suit all manner of tastes. There’s a self-obsessed peacock who can’t stop looking at himself in the mirror, a family of DJing bats, a couple of super relaxed lizards, a cosy family of home-loving hedgehogs and a golf-obsessed tortoise.

    The campaign hopes to encourage people to celebrate their individuality and embrace whatever their ‘thing’ might be. It’s led by a TV spot and will be further amplified through video-on-demand (VOD), social media, radio, digital display, digital out-of-home (DOOH) and print across the next quarter.
