“The Covid-19 crisis has created a seismic shift in how we, as Americans, understand the concept of home. Exploring this idea creatively was very important to us because it could help us get the word out to #StayHome and encourage others to donate to organizations on the ground, such as Feeding America. Our creative serves as a reminder to every viewer that while we’re all dealing with this crisis as individuals, we are all coming together to flatten the curve.”
