Schneiders Helps Sons and Daughters Reconnect with Their Fathers Through Emotional Online Film "Fist Bump" and E-Card
MISSISSAUGA, ON, June 14, 2016 /CNW/ - Schneiders is re-connecting sons and daughters across Canada with their dads this Father's Day through a personalized Fist Bump e-card. The e-card is an extension of the brand's first online short film, Fist Bump, launched just in time for Father's Day.
"Our dads play so many important roles in our lives – they're our mentors, coaches, biggest critics and most enthusiastic fans," said Adam Grogan, SVP, Marketing & Innovation. "Schneiders is honoured to be part of many lifelong traditions between fathers and their children – watching the big game, gathering around the breakfast table, or telling stores around the campfire – and this Father's Day we are proud celebrate the moments that make our dads so special."
Fist Bump, Schneiders' first online film, features the story of a young boy and father who grow up together, sharing a fist bump over the good, the bad and the awkward times that make father-and-son moments rewarding.

"The great thing about this concept is that many parents and children have their own version of what a 'fist bump' means to them – a ritual that endures over the years," Added Grogan. "For some, it's a special saying, or a game, or a joke that seems to never get old. Fist Bump aims to showcase how these small traditions become very meaningful over time."
Sons and daughters can send a personalized Fist Bump e-card through email and Facebook celebrating their special moments by visiting FathersDayFistBump.com. By sending the card, they will receive a coupon $1 off Schneiders bacon to celebrate Father's Day.
