Christmas Advert: My Runner Up

Last Christmas, Heathrow Airport created this wonderful advert featuring toy bears brought to life in a love story. Perhaps it was the sentiment to an elderly couple (Doris and Edward) or my childhood love for teddybears that made my heart melt – but although this advert wasn’t my no.1 last year, it certainly made me feel all the feels:

“Coming Home for Christmas” amassed almost 6 million views last year, and ad agency Havas (London) have been commissioned again this year to create a sequel for the adorable teddybear tale:

The creative tells a similar heartwarming tale, looking back at Doris and Edward’s 50 year relationship, all the way back to the 1960s. There is something about this (maybe the way they dress) that reminds me of my grandparents. Very cute!

Heathrow: Coming Home for Christmas

Heathrow Airport is celebrating its 70th birthday with a Christmas ad created by Barnaby Packham and Daniel Bolton at Havas. The message that “coming home for Christmas is the best gift of all” works perfectly with the adorable (and very nostalgic) characters. I definitely spent a lot of my childhood imagining and hoping teddybears lived human lives!
