Tune in for Star-Studded Line-Up With Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, Iman and Other Celebrities, Enjoy Incredible Offers During HSN's Thanksgifting Weekend, and Choose from Thousands of Unique Gift Giving Options

This was one of the most creative campaigns HSN has ever produced and was designed to give our customers a window into the best of the holidays and gifts.

Multichannel retailer HSN is celebrating the holidays with special gift items, unique promotions and exciting celebrity appearances. To bring the season to life, HSN has created a holiday TV campaign featuring Mariah Carey, Iman and Twiggy as guides on a virtual shopping journey that delivers “the greatest names in gifts.” Set to Mariah Carey’s single “Oh Santa” from her new album Merry Christmas II You, HSN’s promotion showcases a virtual array of shops and unique products as well as the convenience of shopping with HSN.

“This was one of the most creative campaigns HSN has ever produced and was designed to give our customers a window into the best of the holidays and gifts,” said Andrew Sheldon, HSN’s EVP of Television & Executive Creative Director. “It was exciting to shoot on the back lot of Universal Studios to capture the winter scenes and shopping windows -- and to work closely with Mariah Carey and her team. Setting the promotion to Mariah’s new holiday release was a great opportunity to tie her music with her new lifestyle brand launch on Cyber Monday.”

HSN’s holiday campaign is airing on all of its shopping platforms and will also be in rotation on cable operators covering 95 million homes as part of HSN’s cross channel marketing efforts. To view the holiday promotion, please click here.
