LEGO has launched its biggest and most playful Holiday campaign, and Katy Perry jumped aboard to help supercharge the Holiday season with play. The LEGO Christmas advert was developed by the creative team from the LEGO Agency.

The film was created by a multi-award-winning team, including direction and production by Traktor and post-production by The Mill. It is the first time a celebrity has been featured in one of the LEGO Group’s Holiday campaigns. It will be supplemented by further content featuring Katy Perry, including videos of children interviewing her and a look at her building a gift as part of the #BuildToGive initiative.

As well as featuring Katy, the advert is backed by her chart-topping hit Firework, a song about self-empowerment, confidence, and being your true self. It shows the group of children running outside to be greeted by Katy in an outfit inspired by LEGO bricks and riding on a larger-than-life LEGO vehicle they’ve just created together – with every character, animal, and gadget in the colorful adventure built using the LEGO System in Play.

When asked about her involvement in the campaign, Katy said: “As a LEGO fan who has built a lot of models with kids in the last few years, it was super heart-warming to see what happens when kids are in put in charge of holiday gift-giving. Play comes in so many forms with no set of rules, and to see them apply that makes me hopeful for a really bright future for the generation.”
