eBay has unveiled a new through-the-line campaign at a time when economic uncertainty is driving more and more of the British public to buy and sell on the platform.

The TV spot titled ‘Puzzle’, created by McCann and Craft London, begins as a young couple are in the midst of unpacking. It highlights how when you move in together, you’re piecing together two separate lives to create something unified. Some things from your old life still fit, while others no longer do… and eBay is there to help you sell those items and buy new pieces to start your new life together.

The film is accompanied by a broader integrated campaign, including topical radio scripts. Each spot in the series playfully heroes a different slice of life during lockdown, through the items we all ended up spontaneously acquiring – from exercise bikes, power drills and smoothie makers – that can now be sold to fund items to enjoy on a nice Autumn break. Once again showing how life comes together when you buy, sell eBay.
