Annie Murphy and Catherine OHara Star in the Hudsons Bay Holiday Campaign
In news we all needed today, Annie Murphy and Catherine O’Hara are returning to a screen near you after being cast as the faces of the 2020 Hudson’s Bay holiday campaign, A Call to Joy.
The Emmy Award winning actresses appear in the campaign to rally all Canadians, whether you’re a Holiday Traditionalist, Festive Flaunter, Merry Modernista, Holiday Hibernator or a Yuletide Uniter. For O’Hara, being involved in the campaign brought with it a sense of nostalgia. “Growing up with my big family in Toronto, I was excited every year to see the beautiful holiday window display at Hudson’s Bay. I was also thrilled knowing my mom and dad would be buying our Christmas presents there. So I’m very happy to join this festive campaign celebrating Canadians and our colourful holiday season,” she said in a release.
Former FASHION cover star Annie says “the magic of the holiday season is spreading joy” noting that this is what this campaign is all about. As for what brings her joy over the holidays? “For me, that joy is sobbing through It’s A Wonderful Life in front of the family Christmas tree.”
To coincide with the campaign launch, Hudson’s Bay has also unveiled ‘The Holiday Hub’, a one-stop online shop for holiday presents for everyone on your list. You can also shop Annie and Catherine’s top picks, including a variety of luxe fashion and beauty items, charitable pieces and of course, the Hudson’s Bay Point blanket. As part of the campaign, Annie also shows off her, ahem, gift of being able to choose the perfect present for everyone on Catherine’s list. If you’ve missed seeing these two on your television screens, it’s well worth a watch:
