For the second straight year, Mondou, the Quebec-based pet company, created the winning campaign, followed by Producteurs de lait du Québec and Metro Inc.
A record 99,014 members of the public voted for their favourite commercial among the 24 participating entries!
“I never could have imagined a competition being able to bring together so many of our advertising partners,” said Donald Lizotte, General Manager and Chief Revenue Officer, CBC & Radio-Canada Media Solutions. “The whole industry benefits from the phenomenal buzz surrounding the event, not to mention the outstanding showcase it provides for creative excellence. Congratulations to the entire Bye bye team — producer Guillaume L’Espérance, content producer Simon Olivier-Fecteau, and all the performers and creatives who treated viewers to an electrifying year-end celebration.”
The three winning commercials
“It’s a real honour to be picked as the people’s number one choice. Our spot was designed to be an audience-pleaser, so this recognition shows we took the right path. For a family-run Quebec business like ours, it’s incredible to have this opportunity to connect and ring in the new year with local consumers in such a festive and iconic setting.”

“Every year, Producteurs de lait du Québec is thrilled to close out the year along with three million people gathered in front of their TV sets. The challenge of reinventing ourselves creatively after five entries in the Bye bye de la pub competition provided the opportunity to adopt a completely different, more emotional tone that appealed directly to Quebecers’ hearts, allowing us to wow them once again. Hats off to all the participating advertisers who help make this homegrown cultural phenomenon special.”

“Who better than Jean Perron and his zany sayings to continue the holiday campaign by celebrating the food expressions that are part of the Quebec lexicon and local folklore! Our characters also coined a few new expressions to show the central role food plays in our lives. This playful spot reminded everyone that at the end of the day, we live to eat.”
