Ad of the Day – December 8 (London)

Every morning I scour the web and look at the latest ads (in any medium) from around the non-US world. Then I post for you my Ad of the Day. Some days it will be awesome, some days you might not like it. But it’s the Ad of the Day!

Today’s pick:

  • Agency: DDB UK
  • Location: London, UK
  • Client: Harvey Nichols (department store)
  • Name: “Walk of shame”
  • Why I like it: I had to laugh when the background song “Morning has Broken” came in..just right! They had my attention: great casting, great real-life situation (who hasn’t been there?)…and then the payoff was very credible and definitely memorable. A buzz-worthy Christmas ad that avoids the common sin of being overly sweet and sentimental. I would have loved to have been present at the initial creative presentation for this one! Inspired, edgy work from DDB in London. Nicely done!

    • Thanks for coming by and posting, Martin! I agree with you, it gives Harvey Nichols a certain touch of “class”, while keeping it accessible to a broad audience. And I like that it’s a holiday season ad that doesn’t over do it with the syrupy emotion.

      Cheers!
