-FCB Canada’s latest campaign for bank BMO is festive and merry, but in a businessy way. It’s part of BMO’s annual “Wrap the Good” program, which supports the business sector during a key sales period. “Business Carols” consists of an album of holiday carols where the lyrics have been changed to support Canadian businesses owned and operated by members of underrepresented communities. Each of the eight songs features a different business and details about their products. The album is now on Spotify.

In a series of print and outdoor ads, titled “Night Shift,” KFC night shift workers are shown doing what they do best during the day: sleep.
