Accomplished visual director Joshua Kissi delivers a nostalgic :60 TV spot and a 5-minute short film for Chevrolet reinforcing connections people share among family, community, and of course, their car. This year’s holiday spot, created by agency partner, Commonwealth//McCann and titled “Mrs. Hayes,” aired during NFL football on Thanksgiving.

Chief Marketing Officer at Chevrolet Steve Majoros refers to the cinematic narrative as a Christmas card to America. “Nearly everyone has a Chevrolet story, and we feel fortunate to have genuine connections with so many. We call this our holiday card to America.”  

We follow the fictional Mrs. Hayes, inspired by hundreds of true stories, who nurtures a community with the same care and purpose that she nurtured her beloved car and how, in turn, that neighborhood came to cherish her. 

Watch below as the five-minute film successfully highlights universal themes and experiences that bring us together regardless of where we live:

Majoros adds, “Last year, the holiday commercial resonated so deeply with viewers, so the decision to create another spot that was rooted in nostalgia and community was an easy one. Visual director Joshua Kissi came onboard this year with such authenticity and intention behind every detail. We hope viewers love the story as much as we do.”

This year’s holiday spot builds on the momentum of Chevrolet’s 2022 holiday spot, Holiday Ride, which was widely acclaimed as a touching and emotional story that resonated with people from all walks of life.
