A Walmart campaign breaking during NBC's broadcast of the Winter Olympics comes from a new roster shop, Saatchi & Saatchi, the retailer has confirmed.

The campaign centers around Walmart's drive to create new manufacturing jobs in the U.S. Last year, the retailer pledged to buy $250 billion in products made in America across 10 years.

Sources said that Saatchi landed the plum assignment after a pitch involving both roster and nonroster agencies, including Saatchi and The Martin Agency, which has worked on the brand since 2007.
