Discussing the new campaign, which has been praised for its depiction of modern family life, a Campbell’s spokespoerson told AdAge: "We use this phrase internally of this notion of ‘moment telling’. "We wanted to tell just very simple, telegraphic stories that didn’t always need the space of thirty seconds. "It was sort of a lucky extra because that story just ended up being so rich and so endearing."
