This ad served as a teaser for a 2 minute and 20 second ad featuring the glee cast as singers and dancers during a Lea Michele-led rendition of "See the USA in Your Chevrolet" that aired during the Super Bowl lead-out program, which was the "The Sue Sylvester Shuffle" episode of Glee.

On December 1, 2011, Gomez-Rejon directed about six surprise singing and dancing mall performances of "Home for the Holidays" by Carly Foulkesand 100 Chicago-area women in magenta dresses. The performances were later edited into a music video with the hope that it would go viral. The full video that has been posted on YouTube has a run time of 3:48 and it will be presented in a 60-second national television commercial starting on December 12. The video was produced by Ridley Scott and Tony Scott's RSA Films. The musical director was Paul Mirkovich.
