In the spot, Clara is shown delivering groceries to her elderly neighbor, leaving a small gift for another young neighbor, and helping to catch and return a neighbor’s dog that escaped. The spot shows Clara alone in her city, choosing to help cover her coworker’s shift for the holidays. In the final scene, Clara arrives home on Christmas Eve, where she is surprised by a group of neighbors who are returning the favor with a Christmas tree and gifts. “Like No One’s Watching” was created by Saatchi & Saatchi and directed by Oscar Nominated director Ted Melfi. Toyota’s Hispanic creative conveys a magical message of togetherness that’s sure to touch viewers hearts. The bilingual :60 spot titled, “The Search,” shares a heartwarming Christmas story of a young protagonist, Sophia, and her grandfather driving in their Sequoia on a journey to find Santa’s house. While the mission may prove daunting, the two share a special moment together on their adventure. The bilingual spot was created by Conill Advertising and directed by award-winning director Peter Thwaites.

According to recent research, less than 15% of art in permanent collections in the U.S. is created by women and people of color. To help address that, Frito-Lay’s SunChips, the one-of-a-kind wholegrain chip, has brought back its “Art Seen” campaign to give diverse artists a stage on the ground in Miami during one of the premier moments in the global art scene. Select artists will also have a chance to have their work “seen” on more than 20 million SunChips bags and on SunChips social media and advertising.Mashonda Tifrere, the founder of ArtLeadHER and Art Genesis, organizations that elevate female and diverse artists, lends her authority to curate the pop-up “Art Seen” show fans can view in Miami from November 30 to December 2. The “Art Seen” show will be featured at House of Pod, a series of experiential activation houses launched by Pod Digital Media, the first multicultural podcast agency network. Those at the show will be able to cast their vote for their favorite “Art Seen” artist. SunChips will commission the three artists who receive the most votes to create exclusive artwork for SunChips bags and other brand platforms. Fans who won’t be in Miami to visit the “Art Seen” pop-up don’t have to miss out. A digital “Art Seen” gallery will open at SunChipsArtSeen.com November 30 through December 18 so art lovers across the U.S. can explore the collection and vote for their favorite artists. The Miami show is the second iteration of SunChips “Art Seen,” a program that brought to life the brand’s 2021 “Be Your Own Wave” campaign that called on fans everywhere to embrace their individuality.
