HoneyBaked Ham says its hams are better than home baked for holiday gatherings in humorous spot


In its first television commercial in over 10 years, the HoneyBaked Ham Company sets itself up as the leader in holiday hams by showing how easy it is to prepare a pre-cooked ham over trying to wrangle your own.

BBDO Atlanta built a spot that pits a HoneyBaked ham against a woman named Kelly, who has trouble getting her home baked ham right. The 30-second spot goes back and forth from a HoneyBaked to a ‘Kelly-baked’ ham. The HoneyBaked looks juicy and delicious while Kelly has continuous problems, like her dog licking the glaze, Kelly burning the ham and ultimately watching her take a chainsaw to her overcooked ham.
