For the China expat audience, who I’m sure has decorated many homes and flats here solely by Ikea, this comical ad of two customers slowly coming together, and eventually decorating and then literally celebrating Christmas in an Ikea elevator seems only fitting to share.

Remember that Spanish animation that made us all so empathetic for the night security guard? This spot for Uber Eats is a sort of live action version of that. As a restless night watchman passes his time on Christmas, Uber Eats saves the day by delivering the bored watchman a home cooked meal from his family, essentially bringing a bit of Christmas to him.
还记得那部让我们对夜间保安感同身受的西班牙动画短片嘛？这部Uber Eats针对法国市场的广告算是那部动画的真人版。在焦躁不安的平安夜，守夜人独自在办公室守夜，Uber Eats 此时提供的不再是单纯的外卖，更是将家常食物送给孤独守夜人的温馨服务。
