After one of the most exhausting weeks of our lives (and it’s only WEDNESDAY!), what better way to unwind than with a couple of old friends, Annie Murphy and Catherine O’Hara from Schitt’s Creek, starring in a new Canadian Christmas commercial? In it, the Emmy award-winning actresses bless us with a “call to joy.”
“The magic of the holiday season is spreading joy and that’s what Hudson’s Bay’s campaign ‘A Call to Joy’ is celebrating,” said Annie in a press release. “For me, that joy is sobbing through It’s A Wonderful Life in front of the family Christmas tree.”
Catherine reminisced about her holidays in Canada in relation to the campaign. The actress stated, “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!” she continued. “So I’m very happy to join this festive campaign celebrating Canadians and our colourful holiday season.”
Above, the co-stars also feature in another video in which “gifting guru” Annie offers some advice to Catherine on what she can get for the loved ones on her shopping list. Annie’s hilarious suggestions include Dior lipstick for Catherine’s very hard-to-buy-for uncle, two pairs of Uggs for 13 people, an espresso maker for her uncle and Monopoly for children that never sleep.
