Big Bang will bring you Snowmen and ‘Dream House’ this Christmas season



Premium ice cream brand Baskin Robbins has come up with the concept of “There should be an ice cream cake for it to be Christmas” for the winter Christmas season, teaming with one of Kpop scene’s big player Big Bang to come up with the CF named ‘Snow Man Hat’.

Every year for Christmas, Baskin Robbin’s would come out with a different and unique ice cream cake together with enjoyable parties, creating a whole new Christmas culture.
And in this CF, Big Bang will be doing a party together with ‘Dream House’. ‘Dream House’ will be the ice cream cake that Baskin Robbin’s will be introducing for Christmas 2008. The concept of this ‘Dream House’ ice cream cake, like its name, has a village like house in the middle of the cake with the scene of snow falling.

CF Story - ‘Snow Man Hat’
Singing Christmas carols and getting ready for the Christmas, Big Bang was brought to an eye-opener in front of them. It’s the pink roof of the cute ice cream cake ‘Dream House’. The Big Bang members look on with wonder. At this point, the mischievous snowman will come out of the ‘Dream House’ and they will all engage in a battle of pursuit with Big Bang.

Finally TaeYang and GDragon caught their snowmen and put them on their head, and they immediately transform into cute character hats. With that, the 5 members will all narrate together, “There has to be ice cream cake for it to be Christmas” and they end the party in a happy mood. The highlight of the CF this time is the upgrade of the ice cream cake ‘Dream House’ and also the little miniature set animation that came with the CF.



Baskin Robbin’s Christmas hit item - Christmas hat!

Baskin Robbin’s has been known to given out warm presents of Christmas hats for the Christmas season every year. Especially this year, the cute Snow Man hat will be hot fashion item for this year’s Christmas season that even the Big Bang members can’t resist.
Filming episode: Innocent Big Bang’s merry merry party

Recently, coming back with much more maturity and doing their activities with much charm, Big Bang members did not show any tired expressions but instead showed us their passionate side while filming. The look of them making fun of one another wearing the Snow Man Hat and singing along to the carols has livened and warmed up the atmosphere in the filming set.

One special episode is when GDragon did an improvisation of Baskin Robbin’s jingles on the spot, arousing the laughter of those around, especially the onlooking female staff.

A Baskin Robbin’s marketing staff said, “Big Bang’s energry and their joyful atmosphere totally fits well with a happy Christmas mood. Please look forward to the ‘Dream House’ and receiving the cute Snow Man Hat, and enjoy the happy Christmas party this Christmas.”
