Duracell created a playful window display exaggerating the horrors of not having batteries for new toys on Christmas morning

A Christmas campaign from Duracell posited that Christmas is chaos without batteries. The brand created a window display in New York City depicting what happens when parents forget to purchase batteries for their kids' new toys.

The display, by agency Wieden+Kennedy, showed two sides. The first half illustrated parents who had Duracell batteries on Christmas morning, showing a orderly and happy scene. The other half was pure chaos, with a fire starting under the Christmas tree, children crying and electronics breaking down. While exaggerated, it does the job of reminding parents to make sure they have all the batteries they need on Christmas morning.

The window display was up from December 14 through Christmas in Manhattan's West Village.
