Prime time

The Postal Service’s first TV commercial of the holiday season will hit the airwaves Nov. 14.

The ad shows how USPS delivers cheer during the holidays.

PMG Megan J. Brennan narrates the spot, which follows a young girl who wishes for a hippopotamus. With help from her parents — and the Postal Service — the child’s wish comes true.

“At the United States Postal Service, we deliver more online purchases to homes than anyone else in the country — and more hippopotamuses, too. So whatever your holiday priority, our priority is you,” the PMG says.

Other holiday ads are planned in November and December.

All of this year’s spots feature USPS employees and will be shown on multiple channels throughout November and December.
