AT&T and Lily return in first 5G campaign from BBDO

(New ads ads featureMilana Vayntrub as Lily)

AT&T is releasing its first ad celebrating nationwide 5G, starring its beloved spokes-character Lily! Since Lily’s return to AT&T in May, she is back for the third installment of the latest series of ads featuring Milana Vayntrub as an AT&T employee.

This time, Lily is shown back in an AT&T store and making a big deal about the launch of nationwide 5G on AT&T. For customers, that big deal includes a free Samsung Galaxy Note 20 5G with eligible trade-ins. 

 The campaign was created in partnership with AT&T, BBDO Los Angeles and Critical Mass.  Watch below:
