LEGO: Rebuild the World
TV Commercial Review
Heart or Humor
The LEGO Group has launched a playful new iteration of its global Rebuild the World brand campaign. Now in its third year, 2021 Rebuild the World campaign celebrates children as the masters of creative problem solving and shows what can be achieved when people work together to overcome differences or challenges.
The main film is centered on the story of a Knight whose attempts to cross a river to see a friendly bear keep failing. Seeing the Knight’s dilemma, a whole town comes together and pools their varied skills, perspectives and talents to find a way to reunite the friends. As the Knight finally conquers the river crossing, the film playfully reveals how the story and the solution to the challenge have been imaginatively conceived by a group of children building, unbuilding, and rebuilding through LEGO play.
The playful film is accompanied by a number of humorous visual stories that depict the endless ways LEGO bricks can be used to overcome barriers and reunite old friends. One of the fantasy visuals shows a hippo looking longingly at a bird flying in the sky before the problem is solved; the hippo is given LEGO wings and joins them. Another features a pig who wants to see eye to eye with a giraffe – a dilemma that’s easily fixed by adding bricks to increase the pig’s height.
