Walmart advertises its free same day Pickup service in a new ad, highlighting that, with this option, you can feel the joy of giving and getting.
The 30-second spot features a mother wrapping gifts and putting them under the Christmas tree. With stockings already hung by the fireplace, lots of colorful gift boxes ready to be unwrapped, and all things cleared off the shopping list, the woman decides to order online some gifts for herself, too. Thus, she goes to the Walmart app and buys a Samsung Galaxy Tab and a KitchenAid Deluxe Stand Mixer and chooses to pick them up the same day. On Christmas morning, when everyone rushes in the living room to unwrap their presents, the woman finds something, too: gifts carrying the message “to mom, from mom” that she unwraps with excitement, acting surprised.
“Order online. Free same day Pickup. Light Up Christmas.” onscreen lines read throughout the commercial, which is scored by Rick James’ 1981 single “Give It To Me Baby,” from his fifth album, “Street Songs”.
