Walmart urges people to try its Free Grocery Pickup service this holiday and see just how effortless hosting can be.
The 30-second spot opens with a woman who, after a failure in the kitchen (she had tried to make a Holiday Cream Cheese Ball Snowman), decides to order some dishes on the Walmart app and select the Free Grocery Pickup. She tells her cat, Miss Muggles, who’s watching her, to not judge and proceeds with ordering Premium Cooked Cocktail Shrimp, pie, and more.
“You try baking a pie,” she “replies” to Miss Muggles when he gives her a meaninful look as she’s putting a pie bought from Walmart on a plate to serve it to her guests.
“Easier celebration with Free Grocery Pickup,” an onscreen line reads at the end of the commercial, which features the song “Magic Moments” by Perry Como.
The free curbside pickup service from Walmart requires a $50 minimum purchase. Customers can shop Walmart’s food selection online anytime, anywhere, then choose a convenient pickup time and location near them. Employees will pick the freshest items for them and will load them in the trunk of customers, when they arrive, without the need for the latter to get out of the car. Customers can also enjoy free same-day pickup when they order before 1pm.
